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…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. - Readers Favorite
