“My Little Angel” is a lovely narrative verse story about a little girl’s miniature guardian angel, named Angela, who guides her safely through all the activities of her day. Angela reminds the girl to buckle her seat belt, to be courteous and kind to others, and to do good deeds that help strengthen the spirit as well as the mind. Angela helps keep the girl safe and sound all day and all night too. She helps her to be careful and follow rules when crossing the street, and to remember to share when she plays with others. Angela lets the child know that she is always loved, and although she may feel lonely sometimes, she is never alone. After a day of pleasant activities with Angela’s guidance and continued presence, the girl goes to bed feeling safe and loved, whispering prayers for loved pets and family: “She’s my little angel, sent from above /To tell me God cares for me, shows me His love. / When I close my eyes after prayers have been said/ Angela sleeps on the top of my head.” Cheery colored illustrations and special notes from Sherrill help young readers connect to the story’s message. A beautiful successor to the eight previous children’s books in this series, “My Little Angel” is a treasure for young readers age 5 and up.” ..Lorraine – Midwest Book Review – 2017

Another 5-Star Review for My Little Angel

My Little Angel – 5 Stars!

Thank you to Ann (Ana) Morris for the lovely 5-star Review for My Little Angel.  It is so heartwarming to have other authors appreciate and review my children’s books.

5 Star review for “My Little Angel”, by Sherrill S. Cannon

Charming and Wise
By Ann (Ana) Morris on February 6, 2018

This is a charming story about a young girl with her own angel who stays with her through the day and night. Angela (the angel’s name) provides entertainment, guidance, safety reminders, and confidence to follow the guidelines her loving parents have taught her. It is a charming story with colorful and expressive illustrations.

An additional touch that provoked my curiosity was seeking out the book covers of Sherrill’s other books in the story. Very clever! I enjoy Sherrill’s wholesome and guiding stories.

Ann (Ana) Morris is an author of bilingual children’s books… Please check them out on amazon!

Lovely 5-Star Review for My Little Angel from a Top Amazon Reviewer

My Little Angel – 5 Stars!

Thank you Gisela Hausmann for the Lovely 5-Star Review for My Little Angel

a great concept

January 28, 2018

“My Little Angel” is a very cool children’s book, and because it is not religious has a much broader appeal: the Little Angel is a kind of a “mini advisor” who encourages children to do the right thing, and praises them in an affirming way. Children can learn that they don’t have to rely on mom’s or dad’s praise but that their “imaginary advisor” supports them.

I like that, a lot. Let’s face it, these days moms and dads are busy hence it can only help to have an imaginary supporter.

Author Sherrill Cannon mentions all the do’s and don’ts, including my favorite:

“…When I ride in cars, I sit in the back, And Angela fastens my belt with a clack…”

That’s just a perfect way to put it because the wording encourages children to “be grown-ups” and do what angels do.

Adorable illustrations!

5 stars, Grandma Gisela Hausmann

FEATHERED QUILL BOOK AWARDS JUDGES’ COMMENTS: 

“I am a fan of your rhyming technique! The illustrations are extremely well done, and the front cover is excellent with nice, eye-catching colors. The back cover lost some points because there is too much information on it that is a bit crowded and may lose the reader’s attention…

Again, congratulations on your win!
