Manner-Man by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart
“I am strong, and my flash is bright, And I will defend you and make things all right.” These are the magic words to call upon Manner-Man – a superhero who can help control bullies and teach children ways to be considerate of others. Manner-Man arrives, shouting “To the Rescue,” helping children learn about sharing and warning about not ‘hitting with words.’ He teaches that if someone starts pushing, just shout out “not nice!” Meet the children who form the Manner-Man team and find out how to join! Manner-Man incorporates messages and characters found within some of Cannon’s earlier books – helping children learn how to cope with bullies and look within themselves for their inner superhero! This is the fifth rhyming children’s book by this award-winning author whose other bestselling books include Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and Santa’s Birthday Gift. http://sbpra.com/sherrillscannon/
My Review: Manner- Man is a story written by Sherrill S. Cannon about a young boy who was bullied by a kid who took his toy car. His mother gave him some advice on how to handle bullies and the need to stand for what is right. He promised himself that he will stand for what is right and help those in need. So while he lay sleeping his inner mind kept repeating, “Call upon Manner-Man; he’ll save the day and help all good children to share when they play. This hero’s within you; when you raise your hand, your fingertips’ flash will help them understand…”
So he when he saw children fighting, he knew to call on Manner-Man who stops all fighting and arguing and teaches them that instead of fighting they should use their words. For example, if someone pushes you, don’t push back. Just say, it’s not nice to push.
This is a book that teaches children the importance of being polite and learning how to treat each others with kindness. This also delivers an important message about bullying. A highly recommend book.
