Gimme-Jimmy by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart.
About the Book: How a Bully Learns to Share … “James Alexander’s nickname was Jim, but nobody would be friends with him. No one wanted to play with Jimmy, For Jim Alexander always said, “Gimme.” Thus begins the rhyming story of Jim Alexander, whose nickname was Gimme-Jimmy because he was a greedy and selfish bully. Imagine Jimmy’s concern when he found that every time he said the word “Gimme,” his hand grew larger! Jimmy was happy to discover that when he was polite and said, “Please” and “Thank you,” his hand began to shrink. He started practicing his new “Polite Rule” and found out that it was much more fun to share. http://cannon.aegauthorblogs.com/sherrill-s-cannon-news-and-blogs/
My Review: Sherrill Cannon had done it again with another amazing story about a boy named Jimmy who is a bully and therefore nick-named “Gimme- Jimmy”. Jimmy always said, Gimme my toys, Gimme my book. He will grab toys and books that did not belong to him from girls and snatch from boys. Because of his behavior he didn’t have any friends. Jimmy wasn’t only a bully at school but at home as well. His father told him that he must learn to share or his greed may show up in the size of his hand and that the more he takes from people the more his hand will grow in size. But did Jimmy listen to his father and did his hand grow from saying the word GIMME? Will a polite attitude help Jimmy?
The best part in this book is that the bully was the one who had the problem because anytime he mentioned the word “Gimme” his hand enlarges. A book that will teach any child the importance of sharing and that being a bully is no fun. This book has great art works by Kalpart which helps tell the story. I highly recommend this book.
