From My Bookshelf to Yours: Manner-Man by Sherrill Cannon


Manner-Man is a fun book that will teach children about good manners, being a friend, not being a bully and standing up for what's right. These are all lessons that our children need to hear again and again. It is written in rhyme. Who doesn't love a book with a superhero? The awesome illustrations will keep your children's interest. Another great book by Ms. Cannon

"I am strong, and my flash is bright, And I will defend you and make things all right." These are the magic words to call upon Manner-Man - a superhero who can help control bullies and teach children ways to be considerate of others. Manner-Man arrives, shouting "To the Rescue", helping children learn about sharing and warning about not 'hitting with words.' He teaches that if someone starts pushing, just shout out "not nice!" Meet the children who form the Manner-Man team and find out how to join! Manner-Man incorporates messages and characters found within some of Cannon's earlier books - helping children learn how to cope with bullies and look within themselves for their inner superhero!
