"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! This is the fifth rhyming children's book by this award-winning author whose other bestselling books include Gimme-Jimmy, The Magic Word, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys and Santa's Birthday Gift. Former teacher Sherrill S. Cannon has won a dozen awards for her four previous rhyming books and is also the author of six published and internationally performed plays for elementary school children. She has been called "a modern day Dr.Seuss" - GMTA Review. Publisher's website:

Manner-Man is a superhero, who helps parents and children learn about coping with bullying, and teaches children to find their own superheroes within themselves.

Manners grease the wheels of society, allowing people to get along with one another by showing mutual respect - and 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, and about the positive power of polite behavior. "Elisabeth asked to use Manner-Man too / To help teach her friends to say 'please' and 'thank you.'" 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.
