Another 5-Star Review for My Little Angel

Multi-Award Winner

I received another lovely 5-star review for My Little Angel which I’m very happy to share!  This review is special, since it was written by a Reading Specialist.

“Teaches Good Lessons:

Award winning author, Sherrill Cannon, rhymes her way into a child’s heart in this adorable story, My Little Angel. Children read about the tiny angel, Angela, who stresses the importance of good manners and being polite. The little angel teaches many good lessons helping children stay safe. As a Reading Specialist for elementary aged children, I highly recommend this book which provides picture support with lovely illustrations, and rhyming words which encourages children to rhyme. The book also includes questions which promotes good discussions. My Little Angel definitely complements any early education classroom library. I bought this book for my niece to help her build a children’s library for her new born baby. She loved it! Any child or adult will want to read this lovely rhyming story with beautiful illustrations over and over again!”

Thank you, Christine Conrad Cazes for this lovely review.

My Little Angel was written with pre-schoolers and kindergarteners in mind, as well as 1st & 2nd graders, since it attempts to stress some life-lessons and safety issues for youngsters beginning their school careers.  It includes getting ready for school (or daycare), crossing the street, being polite and kind to friends, learning lessons, fastening seatbelts, awareness of stranger-danger, including pets in prayers (which was a request from a fan), and constantly reminding the child of being loved.  I hope you will share the book with your children and their friends!  The Kalpart illustrations are exceptional…

Also, please know that if you use eBay, you can get signed copies… All my books are available that way!  Just include signature requests with your purchase…

 

Lovely Surprise Review for My Little Angel from Reviewer Naila Moon

Multi-Award Winner

What a lovely surprise to receive a note from Naila Moon, letting me know that she had written a review for My Little Angel…   I’m so happy to share this wonderful review!

 

 

“It has been awhile since I have read and reviewed one of Sherrill Cannon’s books, I am so glad I have for today. As with all her books, there are lessons to be learned that children as well as adults should get. This time the author approaches the subject of doing the right things. The “moral” compass is directed by the angel, Angela, who helps the girl take care of herself, her pets, and others.

As with all the books I have read from this author, her poetry is top notch and the illustrations that go with it always match well. Her illustrator is fantastic and she uses the same one throughout all of her books which brings a consistency and one I have come to expect.

In the back of the book she notes that she has hidden some of her previous books within the pages. She invites the reader to see if they can be found. This too is a consistency throughout her books and I enjoy (as kids would) looking for the hidden books. There are also questions to help the reader come to fully understand the theme of the book. The questions are well thought out and purposely directed. I know that this comes from the years of teaching the author did.

Once again this is a book that should be on the “must read” list.

5 stars from me!”

She also sent me a nice note about her review, with the lovely news that she will also be reviewing The Golden Rule!

My CureJM Fundraiser is Still Active – Please Take a Look

I was reminded that I hadn’t mentioned my CureJM Fundraiser site in a long time , probably since my emphasis has been on my Poetry Books lately.

Please remember that 50% of the cost of my children’s books goes to the CureJM Foundation, when purchased through my Fundraiser website at www.sbpra.com/CureJM

Juvenile Myositis is an incurable autoimmune disease, striking many young children without warning.. The CureJM Foundation has come a long way, and the results of their efforts are shown in the extended lives of many children who several years ago had a much shorter life expectancy – but the battle is not yet won.

All of my Award-Winning children’s books are available through this site.  Since many of my kid-reviewers have enjoyed the books but have now outgrown them, I’m now looking for others in the 3-9 age-range who might care to review them for me!  Just let me know at www.sherrillcannon.com
