I know you will be happy to know that Addie is now also a character in Manner-Man, and is the little girl in the turquoise blue dress on the cover!!
Addie is also on the Acknowledgements Page, as Captain of the Manner-Man Team, and there are many other children’s names there as team members – many of whom are also suffering with Juvenile Myositis. We are hoping to help find a cure for this incurable children’s disease. 50% of the cost of the books on the CureJM Fundraiser site goes to the CureJM Foundation to help find a cure!!!
Please share this with your friends and family… Let’s find a cure!!
I had a very successful Booksigning for the WECF Summit conference in Nashville, TN. I shared the author table with Jean Chatzky, the Financial Editor of the NBC TodayShow! She
was one of the speakers at the conference. I gave her copies of my books and got a signed copy of one of hers. Author Connie Elder was also at the table. It was a wonderful experience. My website benefitting the WECF will remain active, for anyone interested in benefitting scholarships and programs for girls and women.
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, Elisabeth 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 the 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 social 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!)
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.”
