“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!

My Thoughts

We all like heroes and in this book Manner-Man is definitely my hero.  He was created for Rob a young boy that was dealing with another boy that was determined to take things away from others.  He had bad manner and was on the verge of becoming a bully.  What is wonderful about Manner-Man is you can call on him anytime all you do is raise your hand high and call him because the hero is within you, then say, "I am strong, and my flash is bright, and  I will defend you and make things all right."  Anyone can do this when they are being bullied or if someone else is being bullied.  Teach others about Manner-Man and join his team.  In the back of the book there is even a badge for you to wear.

This author gets most of her ideas from her grandchildren and her grandson wanted her to write about with a hero.  So what does she do, she writes this wonderful tale of overcoming your fears of being bullied and to encourage others to defend those who are being bullied.  I recognized several of the characters from her other books in this story.  The illustrations depict the story in bold colors and cute characters that will most definitely.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from the author for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
