Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 Little Roo is not having a good day, even though Mother Kangaroo does all she can to brighten it. Fuge's endearing illustrations not only fill the pages with exuberance but add humor as well. On almost every spread, a mouse and its duckling friend are pictured observing each situation, with the little mouse imitating Roo's activities. Expressive facial features change from Roo's initial grumpiness to a look of surprise and shock to final laughter after slipping in the mud. Excellent use of white space surrounding the slippity slide page emphasizes the brown goop of the mud hole. Endpapers are a cheery lime green with pink and purple flowers. While the heartfelt sentiment will probably resonate better with parents than preschoolers, this title is sure to be a favorite with fans of McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1998).

My son got this for his second birthday and we love it. It's such a sweet story and the illustrations are great! It's not really long which is great for us becuase we have trouble getting him to sit still for very long, but it's also not too short either. Get this book for your toddler!

My daughter has loved this book from the moment we brought it home! My husband and I love to read it to her. It has such personlity written into each page and the illustrations are beautifully done. McBratney and Fuge are a terrrrrific combo for children's books. I even went back online to find more books written and illustrated by the two because we love this one so much.

Oh no! Little Roo the kangaroo is feeling grumpy.

He doesn't know why. He just is.

He's so grumpy, he doesn't even feel like playing. Now that's grumpy!

His mother is determined to change all that. She wants him to smile and says he'll feel better when he does.

She tickles him. No luck. She flips him over her head. No luck. She throws leaves on him. No luck.

Nothing she tries is working. Little Roo won't budge a smile.

Not until his mother slips him in her pouch and hops, hops, hops and then slips, slips, slips into a muddy hole does Roo do the unthinkable. He actually cracks a grin.

I Love It When You Smile is a sweet mother and child story for parents to enjoy with their children. The book is aimed at children ages 2-6 and will dazzle young children and even adults with its illustrations.

I bought this book for a friend for her baby shower. It is a sweet story with big, colorful illustrations. I wish I had, had this one when my boys were little.

Such a wonderful sweet book, similar in spirit to the author's previous 'Guess How Much I Love You'. The story is simple, but fun and full of warmth, and the illustrations/art are terrific. Definitely a new favorite in our household.
