New Fan of The Magic Word

An adorable sleepyhead fan of The Magic Word…

Ready for Bed…Enjoy (Please!)

Reminder from the back of the book:

There is a Magic Word

To use when you’re in need,

So give a smile and shout it out:

The magic word is Please!

There are some other words

That bring a magic touch:

When someone does nice things for you,

Say, “Thank you, very much!”

So thank you to all of my fans who have sent me photos, and liked my page, and used my books as gifts… !

Jason Jr. Loves Manner-Man…so does Makayla

Jason, Jr and Makayla

How cute is this?  Jason Holley Sr. sent me this photo of his grandson, little Jason Holley, Jr. who is holding his copy of Manner-Man with Makayla, who is the sister of Tanea Alana Hardy who passed from complications of Juvenile Myositis (and for whom my book The Golden Rule is in memory).

Tanea’s character is on the cover of The Golden Rule and is also in Manner-Man, and now Jason Jr. has joined the team!  As Manner-Man states: “…always remember your hero’s inside!”

“This is the most refreshing, coolest kids’ book I‘ve read in a while.”

Gisela Hausmann rated a book it was amazing
What fun to find on Goodreads!!  Thank you to the “Review Guru” for this awesome review!!

“Now, this book offers a completely new idea.

“Just fingerpaint something you see in your head.”
That’s how this adventure starts.
The storyteller explains that he or she is trying to paint their dog but somehow things don’t work out perfectly. Class ends and the story tellers takes the picture home. Alas, a windstorm grabs a hold of it and blows the picture in a collection of art work for an art dealer.

Much to the storyteller’s surprise his or her picture gets exhibited at the mall with many pictures. All of them competing for a blue ribbon, the first prize
“… to become an artist of great renown, and to be famous and honored throughout the town…”

No spoilers who wins the contest and what’s going to happen from this reviewer but I’d love to share what I find outstanding about this book.

Throughout the book the storyteller shares his or her opinions. Though typically, children and young people are often portrayed as “going along with everything” and “behaving properly” etc… this story teller has his or her own opinions.
“… one looked at it side-ways, and one upside down!
I don’t think they really knew what it was…”

And, just like the “innocent but clever child” in the “Emperor’s New Clothes” this storyteller is sharing his or her opinions. With refreshing honesty!!! Even I who I have read thousands of books – laughed.

Author Sherrill Cannon penned a winner. This is the most refreshing, coolest kids’ book I‘ve read in a while.”

5 stars, Gisela Hausmann, author & blogger
