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.”

“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

5 Stars for My Little Angel… Review by Lorilyn Roberts of the John 3:16 Network

My Little Angel – 6 Awards

My Little Angel has just won its 6th Award, a Gold Medal in the Global eBook Awards.  Here is an earlier review by Lorilyn Roberts, Founder of the John 3:16 Network, who wrote a lovely 5-Star Review for My Little Angel.  I’m very happy to share this one again…

“My favorite children’s books are rhyming books, and Sherrill Cannon once again in “My Little Angel” has created a masterpiece. The story is uplifting, the illustrations are beautiful, and it’s one of those books where you feel good all over when you finish it. You want to linger on the words, the message, and read it again and again. The story is biblical, where the young girl has an angel who protects her and helps her throughout the day. Prayer, self-worth, kindness, gratitude, and love are recurring themes and make this a wonderful book to share and read to young children. “My Little Angel” is a great addition to children’s literature and I’m sure it will win many awards in the years to come.”  … …Lorilyn Roberts

The Golden Rule has a Lovely YouTube Video

How wonderful to look through my YouTube video trailers for my books, and to discover that The Golden Rule has had 7237 views so far!  Hopefully that means that at least 7237 parents are helping their children to learn to treat others the way they themselves would like to be treated!!!  Please help me share…
