5 Stars for My Little Angel – Lovely Review by Lorilyn Roberts

Another lovely 5-star review for My Little Angel, this one by Lorilyn Roberts, the founder of the John 3:16 Network…

on October 15th
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.

Another 5-Star Review for The Magic Word

What is the Magic Word?

Thank you again to Bethany Edwards, international school educator and literary specialist, for the lovely review of The Magic Word.

Sherrill has consistently written lovely rhyming books for young children. Not only do the books have quality text, but an important message for empathy and unity that is critical for children to see in books.
This book models natural consequences for unkind words, but then shows the main character Elizabeth reflecting on her decisions. This is a critical message that just because you make a mistake, there is a way to change and move forward.
As adults we read books like Unselfie by Michele Borba or The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey that outline the importance of explicitly teaching empathy and resilience in children.
Sherrill’s book does exactly that; a must have book for all young ones to see “the golden rule” in action.
The multicultural cast of characters is also very valuable as classrooms become increasingly diverse and children’s books need to help children learn to read while also reading the world.
Be sure to also check out the children’s plays this wonderful author has written for classroom teachers.

Lovely New 5-Star Review for My Little Angel

Thank you to author and blog writer Bethany Edwards for her awesome review of My Little Angel:

on October 7, 2017

“A charming faith-based children’s book that illustrates a little girl being guided by her guardian angel, Angela.

Positive messages of kindness, patience, and a great work ethic are all modeled beautifully. I enjoyed the pacing of this book to walk through a typical day in the life of a child and all the positive choices she made when faced with a decision.

The author is also a teacher who supports and understands how to teach literacy skills with her books.

There are comprehension and reflection questions at the end of the book which can be used in a guided reading group, or at home to encourage reading aloud with your children.

Half of the proceeds from this book are donated healthcare and Bullying Prevention charities (through the SBPRA fundraising sites); another wonderful reason to support the philanthropy of this amazing author.”

LOVE this Review for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys!

Fun to find on the amazon site…  No more whining!

For the whiney September 13, 2017
Have read this book a number of times. Havent seen an overall change in the whining but it did make her (my six year old) stop and think even if for a moment.

Thank You, Ashlyn, my Kid Reviewer!

I love it when I get messages from my Kid Reviewers!  Thank you Ashlyn Rainn!

Peter and the Whimper-Whineys – “Gonna have to read it again…”

Heeding the advice of an amazon top reviewer, who suggested always “liking” a review that someone has taken time to write for me, I decided to go back and look at and “like” some of the reviews.

I was delighted to find this one for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, which I am now sharing:

“I received this book last week and I had wanted to get a review up before now but life gets in the way so here it is now. I thought this was a really cute book. I had my 9 yr old read it which he saw it was from the same author as Manner Man and he grabbed it immediately. He read it and when he was done I asked him if he had liked it. He said, “Not as much as Manner Man. But I’m gonna have to read it again to make sure.” Now that should be a review for you. He has to read it again to make sure he doesn’t like it as much as another book. I would say that’s a definite like. Now if only Ms. Cannon had one about tattle-telling.”

This was a verified review from an “amazon customer”, so I thank you if you are reading this!!!

And thank you to Gisela Hausmann for the suggestion!!
