Manner Man WINNER in the Grades K-2 Category:

Manner-Man by Sherrill S. Cannon

Manner-Man is a super hero who teaches children to share, be polite and make friends. Manner-man shows up and helps resolve conflicts. Book clearly lays out “polite rules” for kids to follow and addresses bullying situations and ways to deal with them.

22 pages, soft cover Author: Sherrill S. Cannon Illustrator: Kalpart

Praise from judges:

“A useful book for parents, teachers and kids. Clear and compelling.” Jean Marzollo, author of the I Spy book series

“The rhyming and repetitive nature of the text was entertaining – kids will love it!” Mary Beth Gaertner, Elementary School Principal, Tomball, Texas

“What child doesn’t love super heros? Both my 4 an 8 year olds loved this book! It teaches an easy to remember way to stand up to someone being mean for common issues kids encounter.” Jessica Johnson, Elementary School Principal, Wisconson

Lovely 5-Star Review for Manner-Man from Valerie Allen titled “Do Unto Others”

Manner-Man a Kids' Superhero!

Manner-Man a Kids’ Superhero!

“Sherrill Cannon did a fine job with this book about good manners and anti bullying. She created a believable super hero for youngsters, who is one of the good guys. Manner-Man teaches children how to confront issues and deal with them successfully. The underlying message, “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you,” will appeal to parents, grandparents, teachers, and those working with young children. Written in rhyme, the chorus verse will be enjoyed and repeated by kids. The illustrations by Kalpart are delightful and attractive to kids. Overall, a good book to have in any youngsters collection.”

Valerie is also putting Manner-Man on display that the Meet the Authors’ Book Fair on November 22-23 in Melbourne, FL…  More about this Book Fair can be found at authorsforauthors.com

I am thrilled to announce that my newest children’s book, Manner-Man, has just been released to marketing and should be available very soon.  Manner-Man is a very special book, about a superhero who can help control bullies and teach children ways to be considerate of others, and incorporates messages and characters found within some of my previous books.

It will be included in the books available on my CureJM Fundraiser website, CureJM Fundraiser where 50% of the cost of the books goes to the CureJM Foundation to help find a cure for Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease.  Addie’s Angels Fans should find this book especially fun, since we have put Addie’s character on the cover with all the other children!  See if you can find her!!

Manner-Man should be available on amazon and barnesandnoble.com soon!!

The Magic Word by Sherrill S. Cannon is almost ready!

The Magic WordMy newest rhymed book is almost ready to be released to the printers.  Here is a sneak preview of the cover! 

I hope that my readers will love this book as much as they have loved Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and Santa’s Birthday Gift.  In case you are wondering, this little rhyme will give you a clue:

 

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!

                                   …Sherrill S. Cannon

eBook versions available on Kindle

No More Whining!!!Sherrill S. Cannon’s two rhyming books,Enjoy the gift of Christmas

Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and Santa’s Birthday Gift are now available on Kindle.  Please take a look!  (Nook will be available soon…)

Sneak Peak at Elisabeth of “The Magic Word”

The Magic WordI thought it was time to share with my fans a sneak peak of the main character of my pending new rhymed children’s book, The Magic Word.  Elisabeth is a little girl who has to learn the magic word “Please”.  I hope that most of you have children who already know this word, but perhaps do not know how magic it is.  Consideration for others is so important, and “Please” and “Thank You” can never be overused!  I hope that this book will become as popular as Santa’s Birthday Gift and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, and that it will help children everywhere learn the importance of good manners and thinking of others.  What a wonderful world this would be!
