My eBooks Are Global…

10 Awards for Manner-Man!

I am happy to report that over 500 of my eBooks have been donated to underprivileged school children around the world and are being used in classroom settings.  They are part of a program to provide culturally relevant eBooks to children globally.  Teachers get copies for the kids and Amazon donates Kindles for those kids.  It is so gratifying to know that the teachers find my books to be written well enough to use in the classroom, and that so many of my children’s books are being shared! Manner-Man is a definite favorite!  (Thank you to SBPRA for making this possible.)

The Magic Word is a Giveaway on Goodreads

I have placed another favorite book, The Magic Word, on Goodreads again as a giveaway.  It is a favorite of many children!

Elisabeth needs to learn The Magic Word  “Please”, and to use it every day. Please and Thank you are words that everyone needs to use!

At the back of the book, there is this extra verse, which I hope you will share with your children:

There is a Magic Word

To use when you’re in need,

So give a smile and shout it out:

The magic word is Please!

 

There are some other words

That bring a magic touch:

When someone does nice things for you,

Say, “Thank you, very much!”

Thank you to all my friends, fans and family for helping me share my books!

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???

My Little Angel has another 5-star Review!

Abigail’s Favorite!

Thank you to Karen Scheuer for the lovely review for My Little Angel...

“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!”
Karen is a former elementary school teacher, a college professor and also the author of the charming children’s book A Bug and a Wish!

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.
