3 Books by Author Sherrill S. Cannon for Review/Giveaway. Ends May 5th
Peter and the Whimper-Whineys by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart.
About the Book: “In a house in the forest all covered with vines, Lived a very small rabbit who did nothing but whine.”
Thus begins the rhymed story of Peter and the Whimper-Whineys. Peter’s mother warns him that if he cannot stop whining and crying, he’ll have to go live with the Whimper-Whineys. His adventure continues as he later hops into the woods and finds lots of frightening Whimper-Whineymen! He discovers that the Whimper-Whineys are very ill-mannered and rude, and that everything is sour in Whimper-Whineland. He decides his mother was right…If only he can get back home…!
My Review: Peter is a small rabbit who is always whining and crying from morning till night. His mother told him if he doesn’t stop whining an old Whimper-Whineys will take him to live with them in a land far away, where he can join them in whining and crying all day.
And when he started whining and crying, standing up on his chair completing about his sister having more soup than him, he was sent off to bed. He wished he was outside and suddenly, he found himself outside in the woods in the Whimper-Whineyland. He came across a group of whineymen, sitting on the ground crying. Peter did not like their behavior when they got up to eat. They grabbed all the food, ate fast with their dirty hands kicking and shoving each other. Peter decided to leave as the whimper-whineymen was impossibly rude. He promised himself to become a happy and good rabbit. But was he able to get back home and change his ways?
This award wining book is a must have if you have small children. It is funny and educational at the same time. When children don’t have things go their way they whine and cry to gain attention. I like the illustration by the Kalpart team which helps not only to bring the story to life but helps capture the look of the whimper-whineys.
The Magic Word by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart.
About the Book: The Magic Word is one that everyone needs to learn. “Elisabeth Keys never said thank you, excuse me or please. She made fun of people, she’d argue and tease. She took what she wanted whenever she could, Elisabeth’s manners were not very good.” So begins the rhymed story of Elisabeth, who discovers her lack of friends when no one wants to come to her birthday party. Her mother suggests that she learn to be considerate of others and to say “please” as well as “thank you.” She should treat others “the way that you know you would like,” and should “think more about others and less about you.” When Elisabeth goes to school the next day, she remembers her mother’s advice and uses the magic word “please.” She also tries to become more thoughtful of others. Imagine her pleasure when she returns home to find out that her new friends are all coming to her birthday party. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if children could learn at an early age to be polite and thoughtful of others This wonderful rhyming book will have your kids saying “please” before you know it!
My Review: What are the magic words in your house is it ‘Please and Thank you’? Please and Thank you are the most important words that you can teach any child.
Elisabeth Keys was really quite rude; who made fun of people and didn’t like to share her books or toys so no one played with her. When it was time for her birthday she discovers that she had no friends.
She learnt from her mother that her bad manners have kept her from having friends. Now it was time for her to learn to treat people with respect. Learn how to say ‘Please, and also Thank you.’ To make friends you have to be polite. Elisabeth Keys leant why it is so important to say please and thank you. Great book for classroom teaching and the illustration from Kalpart was bright and colorful.
Santa’s Birthday Gift by Sherrill S. Cannon
About the Book: If your child or grandchild has ever wondered where Santa fits in with the traditional Christmas story, now you can read them Santa’s Birthday Gift. Finally, a book that ties two holiday traditions into one inspirational tale of wonder – as Santa brings gifts to baby Jesus. The cleverly-written, rhyming book reveals Santa’s adventure from toymaker to star follower — right into the heart of Bethlehem where he meets Baby Jesus in the manger. Delivering toys to a king is a touching experience for both Santa and readers alike, as they discover where the tradition began — Santa makes a promise to Jesus to bring gifts to good boys and girls each year on Jesus’ birthday.
My Review: This is the story about the wonderful birth of Jesus Christ and the story of Santa Claus (known to us British as St. Nicholas) and the spirit of giving.
I was surprised to turn the pages after reading about how the wise men knelt down and presented their gifts to baby Jesus to find the second part of the story talking about how an angel named Santa Claus woke to the starlight and knew that a Savior was born. He packed up his toys and travel to see baby Jesus. He arrived at the manger and he knelt before baby Jesus and promised on Christ’s birthday, he will deliver his toys to all the children everywhere. Children will learn that Christmas is not only about receiving gifts but about the birth of Jesus.
