The Magic Word – Reviewed by Australian Vicki Stanton’s Buzz Words Magazine

Enjoy (Please!)The Magic Word has received a lovely review from Australian Vicki Stanton in her Buzz Words Magazine!  Australian Reviewer enjoys The Magic Word

Almost every child must have been told at one point to use ‘the magic word’. In Sherrill S. Cannon’s The Magic Word Elisabeth Keys has never said thank you, excuse me, or please. The results for the little girl are devastating when she discovers that not one person has accepted her invitation to her birthday party. After a rethink, and a change in her behaviour so that she considers others, 2011-goldElisabeth is delighted that her classmates now like her and accept her invitation.

The Magic Word is written in rhyme and the story moves quickly. The ending is predictable though satisfying for a child reader. The colourful computer-generated illustrations reflect Pinnacle Awardthe text detailing the change in Elisabeth from a selfish, stroppy child to one that respects those around her. The Magic Word has won three awards: a Gold Readers Favorite Award, a NABE Pinnacle Achievement Winner Award, and a Global eBook Finalist Award. The Magic Word would be a useful tool for parents and teachers to reinforce the importance of Dan_Poynter_finalist_GOLDsocial skills. Australians can buy through any online store and the book is printed and shipped from Melbourne.

(The other books will have reviews posted on Oct 5th and Oct 9th. Stay tuned!)

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!
