Welcome to my newest page, where I will post comments from children and parents.
I received the cutest note from a grandmother, who has shared several of my books with her grandchildren, and who also gave her one of my business cards. She wrote:
“My granddaughter (age 7) was intrigued by your business card and said Elisabeth (from The Magic Word) is her favorite character in all your books. I asked why, was it because she’s a girl? and she answered well, mostly because she learns to be nice :) We also talked about manners, how to greet the parents bringing two friends for a play date… so Manner Man lives on!”
I love, love, love this photo sent to me by Madison’s Mom… She said that her two year old daughter loves Manner-Man. I think I can see that!!!
How cute is this? A note from Elizabeth’s Blog about Peter and the Whimper-Whineys.
Her 2-yr old son is reading to his 3-week-old baby sister!!!:
Oh did you see our latest YouTube video? My son is reading what they call the “no whining book” to Alexis. The kids love that book! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvKyIPI4ZNA&feature=youtube_gdata_player
A note within a review of Gimme-Jimmy by Wild About Reading
“My favorite part is Jimmy’s New Polite Rule:
“To try to treat others as I’d like to be,
To try to see things the way others might see,
To try to be helpful, and do what is right,
And to try at all times to be very polite!”
The illustrations, as always, are excellent. I have used this in therapy with my young clients and one of my four year old clients now wants to read it every session. We say the polite rule and she chimes in very loudly the last word of every sentence. Great job, Ms Cannon”
I received this wonderful response from one of my reviewers, which I am happy to share: “I could not be happier to have had the chance to read your wonderful book. I believe children everywhere should read them or have them read to them. The books are beautifully written and ones that should be treasured always. I have now passed the ones you sent me for review on to my 4 year old niece… Her mother has already read her the one about “The Magic Word” and said she was completely delighted. She now sleeps with the book under her pillow. You have a definite 4 year old fan!”
Another reviewer sent me this response from her 8-yr-old daughter, after reading The Magic Word:
At the back of my latest book, Gimme-Jimmy, I have asked readers to let me know if they were able to find my other titles as well as Elisabeth from The Magic Word.
Please add a reply at the bottom of this page, and I will post the comment to this page. I look forward to hearing from you!
