This book of Poetry is a companion piece to A Penny for Your Thoughts, and an additional attempt to put feelings into words.

It’s opening poem is:

A Dime is a Sign Through Time

If you find a dime,
You will know that I’m
Sending thoughts of love
Through the veil of time.

Ten cents with a silver shine,
A sense sent you to help remind
That someone who left you behind
Is always living in your mind.

Sending love and vibes,
Felt as psychic sighs…
The ones that you miss,
Send you a kiss…

Kalpart has once again provided the lovely cover and interior illustrations…

It should be available very soon…on amazon.com , barnesandnoble.com, and my website at http://sbprabooks.com/sherrillscannon  Stay tuned!!!

“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
