Book Description

New Updated Edition
From the best-selling author of The Invisible String
What if you discovered one day you did some-
thing that helped millions of people all over the world
and changed their lives? Something so simple that it was recognized and understood by everyone in every country everywhere . . . and all it took was a kind gesture to get it started. Too good to be true? Then it’s time for you to meet The Smile That Went Around the World.

What starts out as a simple gift, soon turns into a chain-reaction of smiles and kindness in this heart-warming story about a smile . . . that went around the world. Each smile sparks another, and then another and another and another until one day, the young boy who first sent the smile on its way finds himself feeling sad. Before he knows it, that same special smile appears out of nowhere . . . just when "he" needs it most.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a difference just one smile can make! May 3, 2011
The Smile that went Around the World is a beautiful book that touches on so much! This book touches on the importance of making a difference in other people's lives and how just by wearing a beautiful smile you can make everyone's day. This book teachers children how to make a difference by giving to others; it shows children how important it is to share their feelings with those who can help do something about them, and at a very fundamental level - it shows children how important their own smile is.

I love the message in this book and how that it will be shared with children around the world!
