It is not Super-Man, it is Manner-Man! I thoroughly enjoyed Sherrill Cannon’s new children’s book “Manner-Man.” Ms. Cannon has a unique ability to teach children very valuable behavioral lessons through her awesome writing. And the rhyming style of writing makes the story fun and enjoyable and easy to read. And the neat thing about Ms. Cannon’s books is that they are not only fun for children, they are just as much fun for adults. And if "Manner-Man" says something, we are supposed to listen to it, right?
This is the first book I have read by Sherrill Cannon, and I am so very impressed with “Manner-Man.” I think giving you an example of what is in this book will help you decide to purchase it for your child’s library, so here is one of my favorite verses in "Manner-Man":
My new hero Manner-Man’s big and he’s strong.
He helps to teach children what’s right and what’s wrong.
He teaches good manners, so take his advice:
If someone starts hitting, just shout out, “Not nice!”
But also be careful to not hit with words,
For sometimes that hurts worse each time it occurs.
To call people names that are not very kind,
Will hurt your friends’ feelings, I think you will find.
And the cool thing is, this book is packed full of lines just like this. And teaching many issues that are so important to build into the character of our children, this author makes it so easy and exciting. And you will find that the awesome and unique illustrations created by Kalpart bring the pages of this book to life. The pictures just fit the story so very well. This is a book I highly recommend for all parents and guardians, and any library that holds children’s books. You cannot go wrong with “Manner-Man”.
