Review

...a gift to children and parents. This is a wonderful book to be shared within the family of parents, grandparents, siblings, as well as read together with teachers at preschools and Sunday schools. Ms. Cannon incorporates messages and characters found within some of her earlier books - helping children learn how to cope with bullies and look within themselves for their inner superhero! What a constructive and positive way to help children lead by example. This book empowers children to grow as a leader of positive actions, which benefit all around them! - Victoria Ross, San Diego Examiner

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... they are not only fun for children, they are just as much fun for adults...teaching many issues that are so important to build into the character of our children...the awesome and unique illustrations created by Kalpart bring the pages of this book to life..This is a book I highly recommend for all parents and guardians, and any library that holds children's books - Joy Hannabass, Readers Favorite

"...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

Manners grease the wheels of society, allowing people to get along with one another by showing mutual respect & that is no small thing! Manner-Man is a brightly illustrated, rhyming softcover children's picturebook by multiple award-winning children's author Sherrill S. Cannon, designed to teach little ones about standing up to bullies who say hurtful things, & about the positive power of polite behavior.  An upbeat story with a valuable lesson, Manner-Man is a choice pick especially for parents, babysitters, and preschool or grade-school educators to share with children...Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Manner-Man" is another exceptional book by Sherrill S. Cannon. My family enjoys reading Cannon's lovely and well written rhyming verse books; they are a fun way to teach children to use good manners and be on their best behavior! Cannon's characteristic rhyming verse not only teaches valuable life lessons, but the verse makes reading enjoyable for early readers or even for adults reading to children.

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!

Manner-Man is a delightful and colorfully illustrated book that teaches children life-lessons gleaned from Jesus' teaching - Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself.

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!

Manners are so important. They promote kindness, self-awareness and all around good karma, and Manner-Man is no exception! The story is written in rhyme which makes the lessons of the book memorable and fun to read. Kalpart's beautifully illustrated pictures really help to drive the story home. The story of Manner-Man touches on bullying, sharing, please and thank you, friendships and standing up for whats right. It’s the perfect book for children especially those starting school or having trouble in social situations. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to unleash your inner super hero with Sherrill S. Cannon’s “Manner-Man.” Let the fun begin.

The superhero of superheroes arrived in town!
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?

Enter "Manner-Man!"

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.

Manner-Man is in a series of books by Sherrill S Cannon to teach kids manners and other social skills to help them succeed. She approaches each story in a way that entertains and captures kids' attentions. Manner-Man is a super hero that kids can call upon to break up fights and stop bullying. Manner-Man teaches kids how to handle these tough situations. While Manner-Man is entertaining to kids, it gives parents and teachers the perfect opportunity to teach important principles. Many characters from Sherrill's previous books make an appearance in Manner-Man. It is not necessary to have read those books, but for those that have it is fun to see these characters make a cameo appearance. Sherrill provides a great resource for having important conversations with kids in a fun way.
