Peter and the Whimper-Whineys – “Gonna have to read it again…”

Heeding the advice of an amazon top reviewer, who suggested always “liking” a review that someone has taken time to write for me, I decided to go back and look at and “like” some of the reviews.

I was delighted to find this one for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, which I am now sharing:

“I received this book last week and I had wanted to get a review up before now but life gets in the way so here it is now. I thought this was a really cute book. I had my 9 yr old read it which he saw it was from the same author as Manner Man and he grabbed it immediately. He read it and when he was done I asked him if he had liked it. He said, “Not as much as Manner Man. But I’m gonna have to read it again to make sure.” Now that should be a review for you. He has to read it again to make sure he doesn’t like it as much as another book. I would say that’s a definite like. Now if only Ms. Cannon had one about tattle-telling.”

This was a verified review from an “amazon customer”, so I thank you if you are reading this!!!

And thank you to Gisela Hausmann for the suggestion!!

 

Top Amazon Reviewer gives Manner-Man 5 Stars!

Winner of 10 Awards

Thanks so much to Gisela Hausmann for her awesome 5-star review for Manner-Man!

on August 30, 2017

“Manner-man” is a fabulous book. As I read the book I thought that it is much more needed than when I was a child. In the 21st century, bullying has become a societal problem. Many parents wonder how to cope with it and how to protect their children.

Of course, like everything in life, bullying starts small. A toy is taken away, somebody is getting punched…

In her book Sherrill S. Cannon’s protagonist is encouraged to find a “solution” how to deal with this problem himself.

Here is why Cannon’s “approach” is brilliant. Not only does her protagonist learn (1) to “stand up”, (2) encourage others, thereby also (3) empowering others, he also learns to call “Manner-Man.” (Manner-Man is a super hero – in a golden suit with a huge blue “M” for Manner-Man on his chest.)

Cleverly, Sherrill Cannon rolls many elements into one super hero concept:

• Manner-Man is a cool super hero who looks for helpers (like Batman had his Robin)
• Standing up is a virtue
• everybody is working on bettering their society
• Calling “Manner-Man’ is empowering as well as liberating.

In essence it’s a double-coolness factor story. The bad guys are just bullies. They don’t empower anybody and no super hero shows up to support them.

Perfect for at home and in the classroom!
5 stars,
Gisela Hausmann, author & blogger

PS: I also appreciated that Sherrill Cannon featured boy-bullies and girl-bullies. Sadly, we learn that both genders bully others. It’s time to put a stop to that.

 

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.
