Lovely Review by Fran Lewis for David’s ADHD

I received this lovely review for David’s ADHD from Fran Lewis

David’s ADHD


Davids ADHD

Author: Sherrill S Cannon

Illustrated by: Kalpart

Short attention span, easily distracted, careless mistakes in school, and appearing to forget or lose things. Difficulty sticking to tasks and longer tasks more difficult to complete. Hard to listen and carry out instructions. These are just some of the areas David has in our story learned how to overcome. David is bright and with the proper diagnosis and treatment, he should be able to succeed. Let’s start at the beginning. He has trouble sitting still in class and imagines what happens when he calls out, did get, or gets upset. The children in his class and school understood and realized from what I described what is ADHD. He could not see or process the best we do.

The author explains in detail that we have a camera that lives in our heads and gives us the ability to have bright pictures. Imagine looking at a camera and seeing the images unclear or out of focus. He could not connect with his eye or ear. His focusing lens was asleep in his brain. So how will he get it to wake up? How will he learn to remember the skills gr learned? What about self-control?

The author takes us back to when he was young to help readers understand why he could not focus and why he got upset. His parents did not know what to do. Tying his shoes, drawing pictures, and even sitting still created anger within him. Was he out of control? What about his resentment? Why did he feel isolated and not wanted by others? Look at the pictures to understand. What did his parents do?

Testing is a great way to learn what the issues are and when they understood Attention Deficit Disorder they could now focus on how to treat it and help David.

There are new meds and other ways. How do you wake up the sleepy link? How will this help him to think, concentrate, learn to read, grow and work in a group?

Would he need meds? What instructional methods should be in place?

The best way you will learn as the author shares the importance of lists. This helps him to keep a structured way of remembering tasks and more. It might include when to get up, get dressed or even clean his room and make his bed.

  • The author added more but you need to read it for yourself to better understand how the process works. Check out the smiles. Teachers, therapists, friends, family, and more plus learn about how a computer opened up more doors for his learning. How about homework, and time slots for each subject plus releasing energy, ground rules, rewards, and what about losing control how did he learn to handle it? What about friends and teachers in school? David learned to read, communicate, and used what he was taught, sharing soevusk gifts, if you want to know the rest read Davids’s ADHD and how he learned to control it. With illustrations that bring the story alive, the author focuses on a topic that every parent, child, educator, and therapist plus school officials need to understand. Meet David and his family and take the journey with them. Told in rhyme in a way younger children and older will understand the messages being conveyed and the lessons learned, in a way that will help everyone understand ADHD. So whether it’s medication, education, skills training, or counseling, there are many ways to teach young children and older how to focus and concentrate and know they will succeed.

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

Midwest Book Review for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys by Sherrill S. Cannon

No More Whining!!!Today I discovered that Peter and the Whimper-Whineys has also been reviewed by Midwest Book Review, with the following review:  “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” is a versed, color illustrated children’s story about a very unpopular small rabbit named Peter who only knows how to whine. Because Peter’s mother tires of his whining, she warns him about going to live with the Whimper-Whineys, a rude group of unpleasant beings. So Peter dreams of going deep into the dark woods to find these Whimper-Whineys and see just what is so disagreeable about them. His ensuing adventures reflect back to him just how unpleasant and sour the effect of whimpering and whining can be on all who are around it. Eventually, Peter finds his way back to his own little bed, awakening to a golden, sunshine-filled day. Do you think Peter has learned his lesson? “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” is a wonderful fable for harassed parents of fretful toddlers who only need a tweak and a joke to turn their frowns upside down.”

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

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!

“Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” goes to Preschool!

 Last weekend IMG_6737I had a wonderful reading/signing fundraising event at a Preschool in CT, where 40 adorable “good listeners” had their own book to read. After the event, the children left the room chanting “No more whining!  No more crying!”   I certainly hope it lasts!!

Santa’s Birthday Gift by Sherrill S. Cannon – What Santa Gives, not Gets…

Enjoy the gift of ChristmasI love to write poetry, so I’ve decided to share my poetry on my blog occasionally.  This poem accompanies Santa’s Birthday Gift, for I believe that Santa is the Spirit of Christmas:

The Spirit of Christmas

Santa’s the spirit of Christmas,

                          The longing to give in your heart,

                                                         The wanting to make others happy,

                                                        As God gave us Love at the start.


                                                         For God’s Love was born at Christmas,

                                                          All wrapped in a small holy Boy.

                                                            So we want to give on His birthday,

                                                              To share all our love and our joy.


                                                              You’re never too old to love Santa,

                                                                 Just open your heart and believe…

                                                                   That Santa brings gifts for Christ’s birthday,

                                                                 And it’s better to give than receive.

                                          … Sherrill S. Cannon
