David is a young boy who manages his ADHD with the help of classmates in “David’s ADHD”. David discovers ways to cope with his hyperactive brain, while learning how to calm and soothe his ADHD. Solutions include setting daily schedules and following simple rules that regulate behavior. His teachers and therapists encourage using the computer for academic advancement, and to establish a pattern for study as well as for occasional recreation. David not only learns self-control and communication skills, but is able to fit into the classroom and make friends. Very highly recommended for children ages 6-8, “David’s ADHD” is an effective, informative, and charmingly entertaining addition for any family, elementary school, or community library collection. It should be noted for personal reading lists that “David’s ADHD” is also readily available in a digital book format (Kindle, $4.99).

Note from the Parents of the Original David

I received the following note from the parents of the David for whom David’s ADHD was written.  (After I had read one of my children’s stories to him, he told me that he wished there were a book for kids like him…)

 

 

…”The story has stood the test of time.  Kids grow and have a mind of their own.  You hope the foundation in childhood provides the basis for their life. We all have gifts and struggles and when you think about it on a grand scheme, it makes accepting different ideas and ways a bit easy to understand differences.  Every parent/grandparent knows and feels this and I think even more as we age.
Thank you for writing the book and we hope it helps others.”
Thank you, Sally and Marty, for sharing!

Whining at Home? Read Your Child the Whine-Stopper

No More Whining!

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)!!

Special Review of David’s ADHD from a 6th grader…

Lovely 5th grader Review

I received this lovely, mature review for David’s ADHD from a 6th grade budding author… It is wonderful to learn that she is able to relate.

 

 

David’s ADHD – by Nell – a 6th grade student 

“I’ve been meaning to share my thoughts with you about your book, David’s ADHD. I recently read it on the kindle, and I really enjoyed it! I love how you make each part rhyme! I also appreciated how you talked about how he was learning to cope with and accept his condition at the end of the story. That is something that I think about as well, having a disease of my own.

I felt that I was really able to connect with David’s feelings in the story. The way you describe his experience really conveys his true feelings. He must have experienced lots of frustration at first, as I did as well, but sometimes these hard things make us better people. In the end, I think that David learned to better understand himself as a learner, and just as a person, after going through those obstacles in the beginning.

Thank you so much for sharing your book with me! I really enjoyed reading it.

Sincerely,
Nell”

I hope this book will help other kids and their parents, caregivers and teachers!  Please share…

Lovely Review

 ” David’s ADHD with excellent rhyme by author Sherrill S. Cannon and colorful illustrations by Kalpart introduces the subject of ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder) in an easy way. It clearly explains why they behave as they do and what challenges they face. I learned that medication is not the only treatment for ADHD. It is a great tool not only for children, but also to caregivers who work with kids like David.
I particularly liked how the book includes other characters from previous books and develops David’s progress as his parents consults with doctors, work on his new schedule, excels on his computer skills and finds ways to calm and sooth David’s active behavior.
I most highly recommended David’s ADHD. We welcome David’s ADHD on my special shelf!”

She also suggests some activities to use with the book to engage the students.

This makes my heart smile!!
