Book Review and Activity of Gimme-Jimmy
Maritza Mejia’s Reviews > Gimme-Jimmy
by Sherrill S. Cannon (Goodreads Author)
This story is a perfect reading for primary levels. The main character is James Alexander, who had no friends since he wasn’t a good friend himself. His classmates at school gave him the nickname “Gimme Jimmy” because whatever he wants, he says Gimme!
His father advise him to change, but he didn’t listen nor obey until Jimmy bumps into a big change that fix the problem. After his strange incident, Jimmy created a new polite set of rules for himself to treat others with respect. The classmates were excited with the change.
It was a quick read, perfect for bed time or classroom read aloud. It teaches a valuable lesson for all children going to the stage of Gimme.

Multicultural Children’s Book Day (1/25/19) is in its 6th year and was founded by Valarie Budayr from Jump Into A Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom. Our mission is to raise awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in home and school bookshelves while also working diligently to get more of these types of books into the hands of young readers, parents and educators.
