I had a lovely Book-reading event at Pages, A Bookstore in Manhattan Beach, CA, joined by fellow children’s author, Sheri Fink! Two bestselling children’s authors at one event – pretty special. My sister, Judy Shaffer, was able to attend and held the book illustrations up for the children to see as we read the books. Thank you to Cherish, the Pages manager, for allowing us such a wonderful occasion, and I hope that any of you who live near the South Bay will take a look at the store. Both Sherri and I have our books available there!
I am happy to share the news that Gimme-Jimmy has just received an Indie Excellence Finalist Award! This is the 4th award for Gimme-Jimmy – which is all about how a bully learns to share…

Manners grease the wheels of society, allowing people to get along with one another by showing mutual respect – and that is no small thing! Manner-Man is a brightly illustrated, rhyming softcover children’s picturebook by multiple award-winning children’s author Sherrill S. Cannon, designed to teach little ones about standing up to bullies who say hurtful things, and about the positive power of polite behavior. “Elisabeth asked to use Manner-Man too / To help teach her friends to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’” An upbeat story with a valuable lesson, Manner-Man is a choice pick especially for parents, babysitters, and preschool or grade-school educators to share with children. Also highly recommended are Sherrill S. Cannon’s previous kid-friendly picturebooks with positive social messages, including “Gimme-Jimmy” (9781618972675, $13.00), “Magic Word” (9781609769093, $12.50), “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” (9781609115173, $13.00), and “Santa’s Birthday Gift” (9781608608249, $11.50).

Thank-you Stacie for your lovely review of Manner-Man on BeachBound Books!
Sherrill S. Cannon uses playful rhyme to engage readers all while teaching them the important lessons of sharing with others, being kind, and never using words that hurt. I love that she chose to incorporate some of the characters from her other books. Jimmy from Gimmie-Jimmy and Elisabeth from The Magic Word team up with Manner-Man and help enforce the lessons they learned in their respective stories.
The illustrations by Kalpart are delightful. I especially like their depiction of Manner-Man who exhibits classic superhero qualities and characteristics.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Manner-Man so your child can join the Manner-Man Team.”
