David’s ADHD helps Children Cope…

Winner of 12 Awards

David’s ADHD was written for a child with ADHD who requested a “book for kids like me”.  It is meant to help parents, teachers and children with ADHD understand the diagnosis, and find ways to help inclusion in the classroom.

The following is a lovely description from a parent, who is also an educator, of an ADHD Child...

Fun to Find on Goodreads…

What a delightful coloring book that holds such an important message for children and yes adults too. Sherrill S Cannon has outdone herself in bringing Peter and THE WHIMPER-WHINERYS to a coloring book that can charm and teach at the same time.
The illustrations are perfect for both the subject and for the young, the message is clear, and my granddaughter loves it.
Thank you, Ms. Cannon, for bringing such an important subject into an interactive book for the young.
In a house in the forest all covered with vines, Lived a very small rabbit who did nothing but whine.” Thus begins the popular rhyming story Peter and the Whimper-Whineys. This coloring book version of the best-selling “whine-stopper” children’s story was designed for kids to enjoy reading the rhyming, as well as being able to illustrate their own version of Peter’s nocturnal adventure into the woods. Peter’s mother warns him that if he doesn’t stop whining and crying, he’ll have to go live …more

Lovely Review by Lorilyn Roberts for David’s ADHD

Another big thank you to Lorilyn Roberts, author and founder of the John 3:16 Marketing  Network for her review of David’s ADHD!  (See yesterday’s post for her review of the Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book!)

“David’s ADHD by Sherill S. Cannon is an excellent read for kids who struggle with ADHD. I learned more about ADHD in this delightful kids’ picture book and how to help families cope than I thought possible. Most importantly, it’s written so that children can understand the challenges and develop useful strategies for impatience, frustration, and out-of-control impulses.

I believe David’s ADHD would be a great encouragement for everybody involved with ADHD, and it would give me hope that I could make my own child’s life better if I had a son or daughter who struggled with it.

Particular elements of  David’s ADHD that I liked included:

The rhyming lines, which make it fun for adults to read to their children.

The  colorful and warm drawings

The book follows a three-act set-up: the problem, the journey, and the resolution.

David’s ADHD  is timely and relevant.

Elementary school children would be able to read David’s ADHD.

Although I’ve personally not had to deal with ADHD, I have friends who have, and David’s ADHD has given me more empathy for how ADHD affects families and encouraging ways to approach the issue with beneficial outcomes.”


New Review for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book by Lorilyn Roberts

“Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book is a wonderful book for kids who enjoy coloring and enjoy a good story. The companion book to this one I read to some children when I went on a mission trip to Nepal a few years ago. As a read to a dozen kids, they listened with rapt attention, spellbound, and made me read it to them once more before I returned back to the States.

Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book would be an awesome addition to any parent’s library. After reading the story, children can color in the pages as they reflect on the moral presented.

I love books that tell great truths without sounding preachy, but instead, use the writer’s creativity to engage the audience. Showing truth instead of “telling” is a gift of Sherrill S. Cannon. She also has a remarkable ability to write rhyming stories for children that parents love to read – over and over to their kids.”
