A Tribute to Author Sherri Graves Smith


Sherri Graves Smith was an inspirational woman.

As an author, Sherri was an absolute delight to work with and always brought new ideas to the table with each one of her stories. It was clear that writing was one of her many passions and she put her heart and soul into it. In her Game Day Rules series, Sherri brought the excitement of sports to every book she wrote, while simultaneously reinforcing the importance of sportsmanship. Through simple and fun rhymes, she encouraged children to root for their favorite teams in a respectful and courteous way. With her Lil’ Sherri series, she reminded each of us what a lovely place this world is and how a good deed can turn someone else’s day around. Whether it be mailing someone a letter or asking someone new to sit with you, Sherri made sure her books let everyone know that doing good deeds is the best way to spend a day.

Here at Mascot Books, we are proud of the many wonderful books we produced with Sherri and are truly honored and blessed to have collaborated with her all these years. While she will be sorely missed, her words will carry on through the legacy of her wonderful books.
