Editorial Reviews

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.

I thought this book was adorable! What a fun idea to find smiley faces in every day things.

This is kind of two books in one, a book of colors, but there is also a cute, rhyming text about choosing to be happy. This is such an important message, one which I try to teach my children, and try to remember myself! The text of choosing our thoughts fits in perfectly with the idea of finding smiley faces all around us - we look for and find what we want in our lives.

I think parents and children will like this twist on a book of colors. Having read many such books to my kids over the years, it is nice to find one with an engaging rhyming text with an uplifting message to go along with the basics of learning colors. Also the pictures that will have kids scouring the pages, and their world, for smiley faces.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author for review.

The Smiley Book of Colors is a great way to introduce your child to the art of living life with abundance, joy, and optimism. More than just a way to learn their colors, the Smiley Book of Colors helps the reader see a world that is rich with opportunities to find happiness in every ordinary thing. I know that for myself, since being introduced to the Smiley Revolution, I find Smileys everywhere. My children and I look for them all over the place. Once you have embraced this way of thinking it shows up over and over again. I am extremely grateful to have been introduced to this new way of being. A must read for everyone!! In fact, I bought 20 copies to give away because I believe in this movement so much!

JUST from the cover of this book as you can see, these are ONLY a FEW of the examples of things this author has found with smiley faces on them in all different colors! All through this book it is filled with items you would never think to look at as Smiley Faces! Hidden SMILES! This book is addictive, happy, fun and oh, SO creative! Things I never would have looked at as Smiley Faces, now I do!
This is an outstanding book! It is beautiful! Creative! Colorfully Bright! And most of all, FUN! Kids are going to LOVE this book and you will, too, even after reading it to the kids, or yourself, one hundred and one times! You'll never tire of it! This book is so much fun, and teaches young children and adults alike to be optimistic in life! Definition: Positive! Happy! You will find yourself looking for Smiley Faces in ways and places you never would have thought of before! I can't stress enough how much this book should be in your child's library! It's beautiful, bright, cheery! It put a whole NEW spin on smiley faces for anyone, especially if you have children or children visit you! I was just as enamored as any young child would be with this cheery, happy, colorful book! Again, this is what this book makes you feel like! SO HAPPY! You've GOT to get this book! I can tell you if you are ever feeling down or depressed, pick up this book! You will be re-energized and as happy as can be! Just like the Smiley Faces!
There is a really cool video of this book which shows MORE Smiley Faces that will make you laugh and SMILE! You know where to find it! Go there and check it out! You'll be singing the song!

I received this book for FREE from WOW! - Women on Writing, and from the author, Ruth Kaiser, through their Book Reviewers Program in exchange to read this book and write a review about it.

This is a fun book for kids. Check out the Spontaneous Smiley website where you can submit your photos which help raise money for children with cleft palettes.
