My 5 Star Review – Where do smiles come from?
This is a heartwarming little story accompanied by fun pictures to go along with the stories. A tale of a child searching for his smile and the people he encounters throughout his day whom he questions, asking where he can get his smile back. No doubt, there’s a heartfelt message that comes from his mom, where he learns the true meaning of a smile and where it really comes from. A great children’s book, as well, a great parental read.
