We were so pleased to have been asked to review this wonderful book as part of Ruth's Book Blog Tour through WOW-womeonwriting. And the most amazing part is that I'm not the one who will be reviewing this book. My four little beauties--Jaimie, Jordy, Xander and Sophie--will be covering the review. Who better to review a delightful book geared for kids than kids?
I hope you enjoy our review and we thank Ruth from the bottom of our hearts for including us in her blog tour and for introducing us to the wonderful, colorful world of smiles.
(Be sure to read to the end of this post to learn more about the special things this book is accomplishing. And...don't forget to SMILE!)
Jaimie (nine): I liked it and I liked reading it to my sister and brother. It was fun helping them find all the things that smile and now they're looking for smiles in everything wherever we go. Okay, that gets a little annoying but the book is great. And I think it's cool that the author gives money to a place that helps kids smile.
Jordy (seven): It was a very special book. It made me laugh and smile. I thought the pictures were really nice and the colors were beautiful. I think they should put this book in our library at school and our big one too.
Xander (five): I like it. It's funny and I can even read some words. Smiles are good.
Sophie (three): My favorite color is purple. I like Mama reading it. My smile is big too. I keeped the book in my room.
