They also loved The Magic Word, Manner-Man and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys!  Amazingly attentive children!!!

Another 5-Star Review for The Magic Word

What is the Magic Word?

Thank you again to Bethany Edwards, international school educator and literary specialist, for the lovely review of The Magic Word.

on October 7, 2017
Sherrill has consistently written lovely rhyming books for young children. Not only do the books have quality text, but an important message for empathy and unity that is critical for children to see in books.
This book models natural consequences for unkind words, but then shows the main character Elizabeth reflecting on her decisions. This is a critical message that just because you make a mistake, there is a way to change and move forward.
As adults we read books like Unselfie by Michele Borba or The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey that outline the importance of explicitly teaching empathy and resilience in children.
Sherrill’s book does exactly that; a must have book for all young ones to see “the golden rule” in action.
The multicultural cast of characters is also very valuable as classrooms become increasingly diverse and children’s books need to help children learn to read while also reading the world.
Be sure to also check out the children’s plays this wonderful author has written for classroom teachers.
