Treat Others the Way You’d Like to be Treated

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

By Chad J. Harton May 4, 2017

Format: Kindle Edition

“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.”

Thank you 2nd Graders at Grand View Elementary!

My Little Angel Debut

I had a wonderful morning with the 2nd Graders at Grand View Elementary school, sharing some of my books and answering lots of wonderful questions!

Special thank you to Ms. Glassman for the invitation and for projecting the illustrations on the screen…

And also to my grandson who held the books for the children to see the illustrations…

Grand View is the name of the school in The Golden Rule…

We all decided that we should all try to treat others the way we would like to be treated…  to follow the “Golden Rule”…and that 2nd graders can grow up to lead the world by being kind to one another.

My Little Angel Sparks Confidence

By Robin Martin Duttmann on May 5 2017

Bravo!

Bravo once again to Sherrill Cannon for writing a genuinely sweet story. My Little Angel tells the tale of a little girl who makes it though her day with the help of Angela, her Guardian Angel. Who of us couldn’t use a little help, encouragement, and reminders in the form of self talk, a imaginary friend or even a guardian angel? The illustrations are delightful, done by award winning illustrator- Kalpart.  5/5 stars for planting seeds of confidence, sprinkled with a bit of faith! See her other award winning books Gimme-Jimmy, and Mice & Spiders & Webs…Oh My!

Canadian author Robin Martin Duttmann is a talented author of several award-winning children’s books and is also a recent cancer survivor. Her newest book Someone You Love Has Cancer is now available on amazon.  This is a lovely little book for children to help them understand more about cancer!
