Book Review and Activity of Gimme-Jimmy

Maritza Mejia’s Reviews > Gimme-Jimmy

by Sherrill S. Cannon (Goodreads Author)

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13604735-gimme-jimmy

This story is a perfect reading for primary levels. The main character is James Alexander, who had no friends since he wasn’t a good friend himself. His classmates at school gave him the nickname “Gimme Jimmy” because whatever he wants, he says Gimme!
His father advise him to change, but he didn’t listen nor obey until Jimmy bumps into a big change that fix the problem. After his strange incident, Jimmy created a new polite set of rules for himself to treat others with respect. The classmates were excited with the change.
It was a quick read, perfect for bed time or classroom read aloud. It teaches a valuable lesson for all children going to the stage of Gimme.

I received a copy of Gimme-Jimmy by Sherrill S. Cannon   as part of the #ReadYourWorld.

Multicultural Children’s Book Day  (1/25/19) is in its 6th year and was founded by Valarie Budayr from Jump Into A Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom. Our mission is to raise awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in home and school bookshelves while also working diligently to get more of these types of books into the hands of young readers, parents and educators.

Addie – My CureJM Inspiration

Addie is the little girl in the blue dress!

I was looking through some postings from 2012, and found this lovely tribute to Addie, my CureJM kid who was the basis for my CureJM Fundraiser.  Addie is now a thriving, beautiful teenager, still battling this disease but has it much more under control.  We are still looking for that cure!

Addie has also been a character in all of my subsequent children’s books, and was part of the Manner-Man cover…

Memories from Barnes and Noble Book Signings in NY

From 2009 through 2012, the Barnes & Noble in Binghamton, NY loved my books and I had multiple book-signings and my books were carried on their shelves… Until we moved down to the Philly area where they “won’t consider Print-on-Demand books”   It’s really sad…

Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

On the shelves…Featured Author

They are all still available online at barnesandnoble.com however, as well as amazon.com and there are signed copies on eBay…
