5-Star Review for My Fingerpaint Masterpiece

My Fingerpaint Masterpiece

I was looking through some amazon reviews and found the following wonderful review by Laura for My Fingerpaint Masterpiece!

Painted a smile on my face April 5, 2017

This is such a delightful book.

A young girl does a fingerpainting and doesn’t get it done. On the way home from school, the wind tears it from her hands and it ends up mixed in with some other paintings at am art dealer’s store. She’s quite surprised when she sees her painting on display at the mall. People gather around it, each with a different idea of what it portrays.

I have some watercolor pictures that my son did as a little guy. They hang on the wall in my living room and many people see something different. There are even a couple where I see some different each time I look at them.

When the girl tries to explain to people that it’s not a real painting, just somethings he did in art class at school, they don’t believe her. No one wanted to look silly.

The book is told from the child’s perspective and it’s never explained whether it’s a boy or a girl. I guessed a girl and wrote my review as such. I like this clever idea. Boys and girls will connect with the character in their own way.

A cute little story with a sweet, funny ending. The illustrations are colorful and fun. And I bet your little ones will want to dip their fingers in paint and create their own masterpiece after reading this book.

I own a copy of this book. My review is voluntarily given.”
I was thrilled that she captured the essence of the book in such a delightful way!  Do you have an artist in your house???

Two More 5-Stars for My Little Angel

Pinnacle Achievement Award Winner

I love it when I receive email reviews, and am happy to share a couple of nice ones I have just been sent!  I especially love it when they are written by young people!!

Here is my daughter’s review for My Little Angel:
A lovely book for young children.  The rhyming will help children remember that there is always an angel watching over them.  The story encourages children to always listen to their conscience which is their guardian angel speaking to them… Lily, age 14
And here’s mine:
The story of Angela, the tiny guardian angel and the child she watches over will appeal to “the better angels” of any child’s nature, as well as comfort and reassure them as they venture out into the world. I recommend this book as the perfect gift for all the children in your life… Lisa DeAngelis”
Thank you Lily and Lisa!  My Little Angel thanks you too!!

“My Little Angel is another adorable book by author Sherrill Cannon!
Children will delight in the rhyming verse as they learn life lessons. An angel sits on a little girl’s shoulder helping her throughout her day by whispering in her ear, encouraging her, and watching over her and her family – and even her pets! Children will find comfort in learning from this book that angels are sent from God, and they are never alone.
There are so many lessons parents and teachers can discuss with children while reading this book together, and the author even has discussion questions at the end of the book to help facilitate that. The illustrations are fabulous, and convey the feeling of love.
I can see this book becoming a family favorite at bedtime. Well done!”

Reading to 5th Graders at Churchville Elementary

5th Graders at Churchville Elementary

Who knew that reading to 5th graders would be so much fun??  It was wonderful to share my books with these bright kids who asked and answered so many questions that I never get to discuss when reading to the K-3rd grade level… Even nicer, some of these 5th graders recalled the stories that I had read to them when they were in kindergarten…and they fondly remembered the stories!!  Best of all, my daughter is the teacher!!!

Thanks – and Happy Vacation

Another 5-Star Review Starring My Little Angel

Pinnacle Achievement Award Winner

Thanks for the lovely 5-star Review from Marta Moran-Bishop…

My Little Angel, by Sherrill S. Cannon, was a lovely get-well gift. A charmingly told rhyming story about a little girl who has an angel named Angela that sits upon her shoulder. Angela, whispers in her ear and helps her remember all the good things she needs to learn as she moves through life.
It is a remarkable little book that would delight any child, while teaching the lessons of kindness, responsibility and all the things parents try to instill in their small children.
Ms. Cannon, has outdone herself once again with this remarkable little book aimed at gracefully helping adults teach such important lessons in life.
I loved this little book and will read it many times, before passing it down to the next generation.
Adorable, Charming, Delightful all in one little book, what more can one ask for?
Thank you, Sherrill Cannon, for writing it! Highly Recommended.

Addie Loves My Little Angel…

Many of you will remember my Jr. Reviewer, Addie, who was the inspiration for my CureJM Fundraiser!

Addie has written a lovely review for My Little Angel

“Dear Sherrill, Thank you so much for showing me another one of your amazing children’ s books. I have always loved how your books rhyme!  It makes the book really interesting and easier to understand. The little girl is very lucky to have a guardian angel to show her right from wrong and to show her how to be kind to others. “My Little Angel” helped me realize that I have a guardian angel sitting on my shoulder watching over me also. My favorite two lines of the book are “She’s my little angel, sent from above. To tell me God cares for me, shows me His love-” This is my favorite line because God loves us all and he wants to help us be the best person we can be. I really like how her little angel Angela wipes up her tears when she is sad and how when they are in the car together her angel sings songs to her “mile after mile”.   This book is very touching to me because we all need a little help sometimes and this book shows us that there is always someone there to help you if you are feeling sad, or if you feel like you have done wrong, or even if we need to know how to behave and treat others. Thank you again for sharing your talent of writing amazing children’ s books with me and the rest of the world!”
