A brief reminder of one of my best-selling books, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys!
Is social distancing affecting your children? Is your child whining more than usual???
Here’s a fun way to stop that whining!!
Read Peter and the Whinper-Whineys to your child, using your normal voice for the story but WHINING every time Peter or the Whimper-Whineys are whining… Your child will get the message!!!
Tristan and Kallista love my books…
Peter and the Whimper-Whineys was a 2011 USA Best Books Finalist as well as a Bronze Medal Winner in the 2011 Readers Favorite Awards. (This was the first year I started entering the Award Contests… Now my awards total 85… I’ve been very fortunate, and am very grateful…)
By the way, this story of Peter and the Whimper-Whineys is based on a story my mother told to me and my brother when we were little (a very long time ago!) and passed down to our children. I audio-taped (see how long ago this was?) her telling the story, and then put it into rhyme (my favorite thing to do) – and eventually it was beautifully illustrated by Kalpart Illustrations (as are all my books) and published by SBPRA... Now, thousands of books later, the rest is history (and lots of whining has been stiopped)!!
For many years I sponsored a Fundraiser for CureJM where 50% of the cost of my children’s books went to the CureJM Foundation. During that time I met many special children, many of whom are mentioned in my earlier children’s books – and many of them are still corresponding with me today.
Aly was one of my special Kid Reviewers. Here’s her review of The Golden Rule…
Today I received this lovely exchange from Aly’s Mom, which she assured me I could share.
CureJM has additional pressure now, with this Coronavirus threat, so if any of you could donate to the foundation it would help a lot!
Another lovely 5-star review has been added for David’s ADHD by a participant in the 2020 MCBD Event (Multicultural Book Day). This one is from Jocelyn, a parent of an 8-year old son with sensory issues:

“I enjoyed reviewing this book for the MCBD2020 event! The author did an amazing job with storytelling and the rhyming pattern of this book! I read it to my 8 year old son who has sensory issues and he was able to point out some characteristics that he has, and relate them to David. This book can be read in a whole group setting or even one on one! I would highly recommend this book to provide clear, fun rhymes, and a real message to children and families impacted by ADHD.”

This skillfully written text, told in a catchy rhythmic manner by award-winning author Sherrill S. Cannon, takes readers through a day-in-the-life of a boy who must learn about and manage his ADHD. It cleverly disguises itself as a story anyone would enjoy, while offering insight and information about the symptoms and management of ADHD in a way that is useful for children, parents, teachers, as well as medical professionals. As a reading specialist who works with many children who struggle with ADHD, I would recommend this book to anyone who knows or loves these special individuals!
I am so pleased to share this wonderful Review from the Book Excellence Awards for David’s ADHD. It truly captures the message the book is meant to convey, and I so hope it will be helpful not only to the kids coping with ADHD, but to their classmates, teachers, family and friends.
Book Review of David’s ADHD:
Sherrill Cannon has done it again! David’s ADHD is a timely and valuable resource about a young boy named David who learns to cope with his hyperactive brain while developing strategies to calm and soothe his ADHD. With vivid, eye-catching illustrations, the book crafts a wonderful story around an important topic; teaching tolerance, understanding and empathy. The book is an essential read with an important message and every home, classroom and library could benefit from it! – Review by the Book Excellence Awards
To me, this review is worth even more than an award… (although I am still hoping to get one!) Thanks also to Kalpart for those “eye-catching illustrations”!
