Manner-Man was the recipient of the prestigious CLIPP Book Awards for Grades K-2 – voted on by school principals throughout the United States.  Here is the CLIPPA Release for the Award

National release

Sherrill Cannon and P.J. Hartenaus Named Winners of

2014 Principals’ Award for Independently Published Children’s Literature

Branford CT, Oct 1, 2014 – The 2014 Children’s Literature Independently Published Principals’ Awards (CLIPPA) were announced today.  Sherrill S. Cannon of New Hope PA was selected as winner of the top award in the Grades K-2 category for her book Manner-Man. P.J. Hartenaus of Glen Ellyn, IL was chosen in the Grades 3-4 Category for her book, My Sometimes Pal.

The CLIPPA honors outstanding children’s books that offer fun, learning and creativity and were self-published by independent authors.  Entries were judged by elementary school principals, educators and children’s authors for originality, learning quality and use of language standards.

The award-winning books were selected from 10 finalists – five in each category.

Manner-Man features a super hero who teaches children to share, be polite and make friends.  He shows up to helps resolve conflicts, lays out “polite rules” for kids to follow and addresses bullying situations and ways to deal with them. The judges said: “The rhyming and repetitive nature of the text was entertaining – kids will love it!” and called it “A useful book for parents, teachers and kids.” 

 My Sometimes Pal, which was inspired by Hartenaus’ visit to the Belden School, an abandoned one-room schoolhouse built in 1859, teaches young readers about life in the late 1800s, while also addressing the topic of bullying. The judges said the book “…paints a picture for the reader of what life was like in the mid-1800s” and it offers “Good lessons about friendships, communication, family roles and standing up for yourself and your values.”

 Cannon is a retired teacher and author of six children’s book. Hartenaus is a fifth grade teacher at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Glen Ellyn, IL.

Manner-Man is also fun to read aloud to students, asking them to repeat the phrase “I am strong and my flash is bright, and I will defend you and make things all right!” 

The conclusion is…“And always remember your hero’s inside…”

 

 

How a Bully Learns to Share…Gimme-Jimmy

How a Bully Learns to Share

Gimme-Jimmy is the 2nd book in what I call my Manners Trilogy, preceded by The Magic Word and followed by Manner-Man.

Winner of 5 awards: Winner of the 2013 Global eBook Silver Medal, Indie Excellence Finalist and Reader Views Finalist Awards as well as the 2012 Readers Favorite Silver Medal Award and the 2012 Pinnacle Achievement Winner Award.

Gimme-Jimmy is about how a bully learns to share.  His “New Polite Rule” helps him learn to make friends. ISBN 978-1-61897-267-5

 

A couple of reviews posted on amazon include:

“Gimme-Jimmy is another amazing story by award-winning author, Sherrill S. Cannon. Gimme-Jimmy uses rhyming verse that makes reading this book easy and fun. Kids just stick to the charming catchy text, and learn to be polite and well-behaved. Cannon’s books do miracles of teaching good manners to children in an entertaining way.  A boy named Jimmy is rude and acts like a bully. Jimmy’s father warns him that if Jimmy does not improve his behavior, his hand will grow larger and larger from snatching things that are not his. Suddenly, Jimmy notices that his hand is growing large and he cannot even move it. Will Jimmy get his hand back to the normal size or will it grow even larger? …”

“My four year old son just loves this book. It has been such a nice springboard to have the conversation about sharing and being polite — and the growing hand is a literal way for me to explain to him that it is important to use his manners. I love the rhyme and meter (makes reading to him fun for both of us!) I highly recommend this book!”

This book is also somewhat unusual in that it is a story involving a father and son.

Another fun fact is that previous readers will find the character Elisabeth from The Magic Word in the illustrations, as well as some of her classmates.  These children reoccur in following books, so there is a cast of familiar characters in each succeeding release. I am always careful to include children of all colors and nationalities in the illustrations, so that every child can find himself/herself in each book.  My illustrator, Kalpart, is awesome!!!  Please enjoy!!!

 

 

 

 

Addie Reads Manner-Man on Addie’s Angels

Addie Loves My Books

How wonderful to tune in to Addie’s Angels podcast to hear Addie reading Manner-Man to her young viewers.

Addie reads Manner-Man

Many of you already “know” Addie, since she inspired my former Fundraiser for CureJM. She was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis when she was about 3-years old.   I have delighted in watching her grow and shine…and now she is reading my books to her young followers on her Addie’s Angels blog site.

She is also one of the characters in several of my books, thanks to my wonderful illustrator – Kalpart – who illustrates all of my books and uses some of my special children and family members as characters in the books.  Addie is on a couple of covers (including Manner-Man) and also my newest book, David’s ADHD...

Thanks, Addie, for sharing!  I love you!!!
