In 2011-13, I have won thirteen National Awards for my books, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys, Santa’s Birthday Gift. and Gimme-Jimmy. I also have written six published and internationally produced plays for elementary school children. A magna cum laude graduate of The American University, I have had a varied career including teacher and coach, newspaper photographer and columnist, Dinner Theatre Manager, and Business Administrator. My husband of more than 50 years and I are now retired, and travel in our RV from coast to coast each year, visiting our children and grandchildren... sharing my books along the way!


Book Review
Readers\' Favorite Book Contest Award Winner Reviewed by Kristie I. for Readers' Favorite

“Gimme-Jimmy” is a delightful children’s book written by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart. This is a great story to teach young children good manners, specifically not to be selfish. James, known as Jimmy, is a bully and demanding towards others. Others begin to call him "Gimme-Jimmy" as he is known for his actions and words that are always demanding and about himself. Jimmy’s hand begins to grow and grow until it hurts him to carry it around and it becomes difficult to do everyday tasks. Jimmy begins to be nice and polite and follows his new rule and he discovers this is the best way to act!

This book is written in rhyme and is very “catchy” to read. The illustrations are well done and go along perfectly with the story. “Gimme-Jimmy” is a great tool for teaching manners and get a point across to young children. Obviously a child’s hand is not going to physically grow like that as a result of being selfish, but it is a great start to a discussion with children about what will and does actually happen. Reading this story would be great to go along with a classroom or small group curriculum as it would be an excellent resource or even a way to jumpstart additional activities and discussions pertaining to manners. Jimmy will be a memorable character and this book will be a memorable story to help children remember not to be “gimmes” and follow the polite rule.
