Who can resist the wacky, cute smiley faces to be spied in photos of colorful found objects? Young readers will enjoy learning their colors as they're identifying what the smileys are made from—an electrical outlet, a hubcap, even a piece of toast—and readers of all ages will appreciate the witty rhyming text, and its inspirational message about choosing happiness.

About the Author

RUTH KAISER is a mom, an artist, an actor, and a teacher. Her Internet-based Spontaneous Smiley project is made up of thousands of people photographing and posting smiley faces they find in everyday objects. (This was started long before the recent American Express ad campaign featuring similar images.) In August 2009, Spontaneous Smiley began a partnership with the charity Operation Smile, which funds surgeries for children around the globe with facial deformities. A smiley upload earns a $1 donation to Operation Smile.
Spontaneous Smiley, which has recieved well over 13 million page requests, has been used in high-school art projects in New Jersey and Washington State, and for a Girl Scout troop in California. It has gotten lots of press globally—including China—and it was recently featured on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.

This little book is a tool for parents. It doesn't just teach about colors - but it also helps to teach children to LOOK for the good around them beginning by teaching them to look for SMILES in what they see. Each page of the book is devoted to a color - take green - the pictures show an apple with two seed eyes and a fold in the skin & fruit becomes the smile. It also shows a recycle bin with 2 holes for cell phones & inkjet cartridges for eyes and a line underneath forming a smile. Each of the pages takes everyday items that LOOK like a smile with eyes and a mouth. You might see a tractor, fruit, a zipper and two snaps, two bolts and a split in wood, and even the old standard - a picture in the clouds.The ultimate value in this book is that it TEACHES your children to look for the good in life. Instead of thinking ICK or YUCK your child learns to think that it might be GOOD, to TRY new things and give it a CHANCE. This little book should be in every library - at home, school and every city library. It makes a great birthday gift - or for just because.
