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!)
I 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!
