The CureJM Fundraiser Website Updated!

I’m happy to report that the CureJM Fundraiser website, has been updated and my newest, My Little Angel, is now available as well.

As posted often:  Please remember that everyone can help by getting great books for kids and grandkids (and their friends) and support CureJM – Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease – at the same time! Please visit the on-going CureJM Fundraiser at where 50% of the cost of my award-winning children’s books goes to the CureJM Foundation. The names of many JM kids are included in my newly released 2017 book, “My Little Angel“.  Please help us find a cure for kids like Addie, Alyssa, Brookelyn, Cassie, Daisy, Dmitri, Eldon, Emma, Jaden, Kinser,Tristan, Zayden and all the other JM kids – and the many adults who also have this horrible disease!!!

Let’s help children learn to bring about a world where people treat others the way they themselves would like to be treated…


Addie Loves My Little Angel…

Many of you will remember my Jr. Reviewer, Addie, who was the inspiration for my CureJM Fundraiser!

Addie has written a lovely review for My Little Angel

“Dear Sherrill, Thank you so much for showing me another one of your amazing children’ s books. I have always loved how your books rhyme!  It makes the book really interesting and easier to understand. The little girl is very lucky to have a guardian angel to show her right from wrong and to show her how to be kind to others. “My Little Angel” helped me realize that I have a guardian angel sitting on my shoulder watching over me also. My favorite two lines of the book are “She’s my little angel, sent from above. To tell me God cares for me, shows me His love-” This is my favorite line because God loves us all and he wants to help us be the best person we can be. I really like how her little angel Angela wipes up her tears when she is sad and how when they are in the car together her angel sings songs to her “mile after mile”.   This book is very touching to me because we all need a little help sometimes and this book shows us that there is always someone there to help you if you are feeling sad, or if you feel like you have done wrong, or even if we need to know how to behave and treat others. Thank you again for sharing your talent of writing amazing children’ s books with me and the rest of the world!”

Another 5-Star Review for The Golden Rule

Children's Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Children’s Literary Classics Seal of Approval

5.0 out of 5 stars Sherrill Cannon does it again!,

April 30, 2016
By Karen Scheuer
This review is from: The Golden Rule (Paperback)

“Sherrill Cannon does it again! What a great book! The Golden Rule, with its wonderful rhyming text, will teach children HOW to treat others they way they’d like to be treated. In the beginning, the kids were looking for a “ruler,” because that’s what they thought they heard. Then they realized it was a “RULE” they needed! Isn’t that the way of the world? We often look for THINGS to make us happy, but instead it’s not the things at all. Like Sherrill’s book says, “The rule is not something that money can buy. It’s more of a way to feel good inside.” Children, families, and teachers will enjoy this book, with its whimsical illustrations by Kalpart. It will also be fun for children to search inside this book for the covers of other books written by Sherrill Cannon. Well done!”

Thanks for this lovely review, Karen.  Karen is the author of A Bug and a Wish, a great book about helping to solve the problem of bullying.

Thank you also to KJ of Kalpart, for adding the CLC Seal of Approval on the cover of The Golden Rule!
