I love finding new reviews on amazon… Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.  Thank you for following the Golden Rule!!

5.0 out of 5 stars” Treat others the way you would like for them to treat you

“Treat others the way you would like for them to treat you.”
This is a book every parent should read to their child. Beautifully and poetically written, it not only explains what the golden rule is, but also gives many examples of how to put it to use in everyday activities. There are also some great discussion questions at the end of the book.

Highly recommend.”

Lovely Feathered Quill Review for My Little Angel

I’m so pleased to share this lovely review by Feathered Quill Book Reviews for My Little Angel

A Favorite Fan, Ashlyn

My Little Angel  By: Sherrill S. Cannon

Illustrated by: Kalpart  ISBN: 978-1681819471

Reviewed by: Holly Connors  for Feathered Quill Book Reviews – Review Date: May 2017

“Award-winning author Sherrill S. Cannon is at it again with her newest book, My Little Angel, telling a delightful story about a little girl and her guardian angel.

The star of our adventure, a sweet little girl (we never learn her name), tells the reader about her very special friend, Angela, who just happens to be her guardian angel. Angela sits on the girl’s shoulder and is dressed is a light blue dress with matching shoes, a halo, and white, almost translucent, wings. Angela always wears a big smile, and sparkling light seems to follow her wherever she goes.

The little girl talks about all the wonderful things her guardian angel does. For example,

She helps keep me safe as I’m walking to school,

Reminding me always to follow the rules.

She makes me look both ways when crossing the street,

And she makes sure I’m careful where I put my feet.

The author takes the reader through a full day of events, at home, at school, even getting ready for bed, with the guardian angel constantly at the girl’s side. Angela reminds the girl of many important things too, from brushing her teeth in the morning, saying “Thank you,” “Excuse me,” and “Please,” to helping her say her prayers at night. If she’s afraid, Angela is there to console her, and remind her to “Think of others, be helpful and kind.”

As soon as you read the first line of My Little Angel, you’ll know you’ve opened a good book:

Angela sits on my shoulder and glows –

Whatever I do or think, Angela knows…

The story, written in a nice-flowing rhyme, tells a sweet story that also helps impart life lessons (manners, caring for others) to young readers. Like the other books by Sherrill Cannon, this one is illustrated by Kalpart, a company that has a reputation for creating delightful images for books. Again, Kalpart does not disappoint as the drawings are vibrant and fun and are a perfect compliment to the story. At the back of the book the author has included “Special Notes” that ask children to a) hunt and find images of different book covers in the story; b) answer questions about their own safety habits; and c) answer questions about the story. Finally, if you purchase the author’s books from the website sbpra.com/curejm, 50% of the sales will be donated to help find a cure for Juvenile Myositis – a win-win for everybody!

Quill says: My Little Angel is a wonderful story for little ones who will love reading about Angela, a guardian angel, and dreaming up what their own guardian angel might look like and do to help them.”

 

My Latest Friends and Fans Letter…and the YouTube video for My Little Angel

I wanted to share my latest update with my Facebook Friends as well.  Especially the YouTube trailer for My Little Angel that I just received!

Dear Friends, Family, and Fans,

I haven’t communicated in a while, and forgive me if I have shared this with some of you, but I wanted to update everyone on my newest (and last) children’s book!

My Little Angel, has now been released and is available as both picture book and eBook on both amazon http://amzn.to/2oHnpqd and on Barnes & Noble http://bit.ly/2pijMep  It already has a lovely review from Readers’ Favorite, but I would love it if some of you had time to leave a review.  I have been reminded that amazon helps promote books, once they get 20 reviews… Here is the link for the YouTube trailer:  https://youtu.be/zN5-cZuMbKY

Here is a link for a pdf sample of the book: http://authormarketingideas.com/suntec2016/www/sample/978-1-94653-935-9sample.pdf

I am also happy to report that the awards for my books now total 47.  (This never ceases to amaze me!)  My Little Angel now has its first award, a Pinnacle Achievement Award and recently The Golden Rule was awarded second place by Reader Views Reviewer’s Choice!  Wouldn’t it be nice to reach 50?

As in all my books, the illustrations by Kalpart are awesome, and many familiar faces from my classroom of kids are included in the books.

Thanks to all of you for helping me share my books. Please teach your children to be kind and to think of others… What a wonderful world this could be!!!
