Lovely Review by Reader Views of The Golden Rule

Treat Others the Way You'd Like to be Treated

Treat Others the Way You’d Like to be Treated

I love reviews, especially when children write them.  I received this review from Reader Views:

ISBN 9781681813264
Reviewed by Paola Belloso (age 9) for Reader Views (01/17)

“The Golden Rule” by Sherrill S. Cannon, is about two siblings that were trying to look for a ruler that their mom always talked about. They thought the best place to look for it was at school but they couldn’t find it. After looking all over and not finding it, one of them realized that is was not a golden ruler it was a rule. A rule that is to be used not only at school, but everywhere.

It says, “Treat others the way you’d liked to be treated.”

It is a very good rule that will always make you think and be aware of what is around us and make good use of it. I think it is a great message for all kids.

This is a great book. I love the rhyming. It is really a keeper for all ages.

A Note from Paola’s Mom:

“The Golden Rule” by Sherrill S. Cannon is a wonderful book that kids will enjoy not only the rhyming but also the message in it.

For us to teach and for them to learn to be nice, kind and treat other the same way they want to be treated sometimes is not easy. It is a fun way to reinforce the great “Golden Rule.” Paola really loved it.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Remembering the Newtown Angels

Manner-Man Remembers the Newtown Angels..

Manner-Man Remembers the Newtown Angels..

On this day, so many truly innocent lives were lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT,  and our nation lost a lot of its innocence as well…

Manner-Man was in the final stages of preparation for printing when this tragedy occurred.  I was able to include the names of the children as Angels in the Acknowledgements – and SBPRA and I sent a copy of the book to each of the children’s families.  So if you have a copy of Manner-Man please look at the acknowledgements… and say a prayer that this never happens again…

Does Your Child Say “Gimme”?

Another reminder for Holiday Gift Giving!  Gimme-Jimmy is about how a bully learns to share.  What would happen if every time you said, “Gimme”, your hand got bigger?  See how Jimmy’s father helps him learn how to change…

Winner of 5 Awards

Winner of 5 Awards

This book, winner of 5 awards, is a favorite of boys…and girls too!  It’s also fun in that the Dad is the main parenting character…

(Personal note:  Not long after reading Gimme-Jimmy with his Mom, my grandson was badgering his Mom about getting a drink while she was trying to put groceries away, and she said, “Gimme a break…” at which point his eyes got big and he exclaimed,  “Oh oh…Watch out! Your hand’s going to start growing!!!”)
