"...Manner-Man takes on problem solving and dealing with bullies...has the kids solve problems calmly with words, though not words that hurt. When someone hits, pushes, takes a toy, or any other injustice, he has them shout "Not nice" to the offender... Writing rhyming stories, each a lesson in good manners, self-control, and making friends is what Ms. Cannon does best...One of this decade's prolific children's authors, Ms. Cannon writes with ease. Her books are great read-alouds and make wonderful books for kids with advanced beginner reading skills. - Kid-Lit Review

The beautiful illustrations perfectly complement the story, and my daughters loved picking out characters such as Elisabeth and Jimmy from Cannon's previous books and seeing how those characters have changed after improving their behavior. The Manner-Man character adds a new element to Cannon's already charming books. Manner-Man serves as a role model for children who try to do the right thing and also for children who need a little help with their manners.
This book is entertaining to read at home with your own children, but it's also an excellent choice to read at childcare centers, preschools, Sunday school classes, libraries, or other places where you need a high quality book to help teach lessons on good manners and getting along with others!
Being the fifth rhyming book from the author, the story captures children's hearts and minds through a superhero named "Manner-Man." He comes to the rescue when called upon and his motto is, "I am strong, and my flash is bright, and I will defend you and make things right."
The book encourages children to repeat this motto and is a reminder for children to call upon their inner-strength of the light within them that is, of course, the light of Jesus shining brightly through them. Brilliantly entertainingly, this tale of the superhero, Manner-Man, gives little ones a solution to bullying that lovingly instructs and encourages polite manners, sharing and treating others with love and respect, especially with our words.
Having read this story to my eight year-old daughter, I must admit, I was sweetly surprised by her enthusiasm as she raised her three little fingers in accordance with the characters of the book that so heroically called upon their superhero "Manner-Man." My daughter was completely engaged with the story and the presentation of the tale by the way of a rhyming adventure. The book also kept her attention to the very end.
In the end, we were able to discuss what to do about bullying or what to do when kids are not so nice. I would highly recommend this book for school age children to instruct them on godly behavior and what to do when someone is not nice.
A wonderful and unforgettable bedtime story!
True, Batman and Spider-Man and their ilk save the innocent from the claws of evil men, but seriously, how relevant and applicable are they to your kids' lives?
Author Sherrill S. Cannon's creation ought to be introduced in every household with kids and to all teachers and children's counselors! Indeed, Manner-Man's prowess and his influence on kids' comportment and their social interaction will overshadow the legends of Superman and Wonder Woman! And, mark my word: As the legend of "Manner-Man" spreads and thrives so will the quality of families' lives around the globe.
Sherrill S. Cannon's delightful and award-winning style displayed in "Peter and the Whimper-Whineys" and "The Magic Word" is present in this lovely book as well, as the author manipulates words and phrases and renders them deliciously rhymed.
