Lovely Review for A Penny for Your Thoughts

A Gold for Penny!

A lovely review from Diana Iozzia – Here is her “Thank You” Note:

Hi Sherrill,

Thank you so much for sending me a copy of your beautiful poetry. It reminded me of my lovely and my fiance’s grandmother. I cannot wait to share it with his grandmother, and it reminds me to maybe go visit my aunt and read to her memorial site one of these days.

I wholeheartedly loved it.

Thank you so much.

Here is her lovely review:

Sherrill Cannon’s poetry is beautiful, in the way that your grandmother’s voice sounded as she brushed your hair. I feel like I should be reading this book of poetry while sitting outside and breathing in morning air. I could see how lovely this book would be if read on a vacation in the countryside. This book reminds me of my aunt and her little kitchen with cute chair cushions and the nice decorations.

Mrs. Cannon’s writing is melodic and soothing, like a cup of tea with your favorite relative would be. I love Mrs. Cannon’s personification and metaphors. She often personifies things in nature, how they behave, how they hold meaning to her. I feel that if I wrote poetry, it would be something like this. There are many favorite poems in this collection, so bear with me. I really enjoyed reading these.

My favorite poems in this collection are:

“A Promise”, “A Sign” History”, “I Think of You”, “Proposal”, “The Box”, “To a Holly Tree”, “Thorns”, “Winter’s Nuptials”, “Autumn”, “Brief Meeting”, “Frozen Wasteland”, “Grandfather Clock”, “Flowers”, “My Tree”, “Peter Pan”, “Ready”, “Separation”, “The Fork”, “When Death Comes For Me”, “Winter Arrives”, “Winter Bride”, “Winter Storm”, “Winter”, “A Year”.

* I thank Sherrill deeply and wholeheartedly for sending me a copy of this book to read and review. *

“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…

Another Lovely 5-Star Review for My Little Angel

Thanks so much to Brenda Chaput for her great review of My Little Angel...

Pinnacle Achievement Award Winner

 5.0 out of 5 stars

My Little Angel by Sherrill Cannon is SWEET. I enjoyed the rhythm of this little angel book. It’s moral poetry. Small children love reciting verses that flow. Within these verses is values needed to instill safety, good manners, respect for parents and obedience to the law. Things that give children structure. The illustrations are fun to view. They’re bright and cheery. This is always a focusing point with small kids. But more than anything else, this little angel book teaches small children to follow right thinking. A real thumbs up, a five star for sure, and better than any toy. Quality. (All of Sherrill’s children books are listed in the back of My Little Angel) Handy.
