Fun to see this from Kalpart, my awesome illustrator, since many of my characters are included… Kalpart has illustrated all nine of my award-winning children’s books!
How many characters can you find?
I found Manner-Man, Elisabeth from The Magic Word, Gimme-Jimmy, Santa’s Birthday Gift, and little Addie, who is my CureJM Jr. Reviewer and is one of my classroom kids in several books!!
I’m happy to report that the CureJM Fundraiser website, http://sbpra.com/curejm has been updated and my newest, My Little Angel, is now available as well.

Thank you Google for alerting me that one of my children’s plays, co-authored with my daughter Kerry Gallagher, The King’s Spell, was part of a children’s workshop in Aiken, SC. (All of our children’s plays are available at www.lazybeescripts.co.uk )
Thank you Willow Cramer (age 7) for the lovely review of My Little Angel, and to Willow’s Dad for the additional insight!
My Little Angel Sherrill S. Cannon Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency, LLC (2017) ISBN 9781681819471 Reviewed by Willow Cramer (Age 7) for Reader Views Kids (7/17)
“My Little Angel” by Sherrill S. Cannon is about a little angel who is always on a girl’s shoulder. At night she sleeps on the girl’s head. The angel cared for the little girl too. What I liked most about this story is that there’s always an angel beside the little girl. I liked that there were no bad guys in the book, and that it was easy to read. I really liked the art and one day I know I can draw this well. My favorite is the page when she’s in the car because her head is bigger than her body. It makes me laugh. There was nothing in the book I didn’t like, but it was too easy for me to read and I have other books that are similar. I would recommend this book to younger kids like my brother because it’s not for kids my age. It’s too easy for me to read. Like the girl in this book, I feel I have an angel with me too who gives me good ideas. I feel like Jesus gave her to me.
Dad’s Comments This is a book that my daughter did not have a lot to say about because it was a very simple-to-read book. This is a book that she does read on occasion. Even after completing her review and despite her comments about being easy to read, I feel she really enjoys reading it. I like when books end with questions and activities. In this book, I didn’t notice them at first (since they come after the acknowledgements section), but now that I see them, I’m glad they are there. The author hid her other book covers throughout the book, so there’s a “Where’s Waldo” like mini-game. Additionally, she offers “What” and “Now What?” questions about the book and ends with questions the reader can use to apply some of the important concepts from the book (wearing a seatbelt, staying close to a parent, pet ownership, etc.). It is nice, too, that 50% of the cost of the author’s books is used to help find a cure for Juvenile Myositis, an incurable autoimmune disease. I’d never even heard of this before reviewing this book with my daughter, so I’m glad to have had the opportunity to learn about this through the author’s efforts. Overall, I recommend “My Little Angel” by Sherrill S. Cannon as a good book with a good lesson.
(Author’s note: Willow, at age 7, is quite astute and obviously a good reader! The book is actually best for ages 3-7…)
