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… !

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

 

 

Thank you Kalpart for Updating the Covers

I have the very best illustrator!  KJ and Kalpart Illustrations are awesome.

Two of my books just received awards in the Global Ebook Awards...

Now, according to KJ, “Each of these books are ornamented with a string of awards…”  I couldn’t express it better myself!!

(I was not aware of Contests and Awards when my first two books were published. In my first submission to the Readers’ Favorite Awards in 2011, I entered The Magic Word, Santa’s Birthday Gift and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys at the same time and won Gold, Silver and Bronze respectively at the same time! Now THAT was fun!!!)

I recommend entering awards to all new authors, since winning awards gives instant credibility to books by new or unknown authors – not to mention ones that have been releasing books for a relatively long time. Some of them also have categories which accept books written in past years, so it may not be too late to enter!  I hope that the above lists of awards will also give some of you an idea of which awards I have entered and consider reputable!

All of my books have been published by SBPRA, and have been illustrated by the amazing and talented Kalpart Illustrations which have brought my books to life and contributed to their awards!!
