About the Author

Writing children’s short stories has always been a hobby for me. Ideas would emerge from real life experiences and sometimes, from a child with endearing character traits. Mostly though, my inspiration came from my precious daughter, Tammy, who possessed the most precocious, yet charming and unique sense of humor I have ever known. My memories of her childhood could keep me writing for eternity and so I have chosen to enter the wonderful world of children’s writing with the Sunshine series, reflective of Tammy’s infectious smile. Most recently, I have introduced Andy-Roo, a new character series aimed at bringing enjoyment and a strong social message for the young child. If I can bring smiles to little faces with my writing, then I consider my contribution to their world to be a resounding success.

Sunshine: I'll make you smile
Linda Hales
Createspace, March 2012
ISBN: 9781475036589
eBook 20 pages
Paperback 26 pages
Children's Book
3-7 year-olds

Sunshine is a positive and bright story with a simple message: a smile is a powerful thing. For those of us who are a little older than the target market, the message goes a little deeper, asking us to look at our attitudes and the power they have to change the world around us.

Parents should be forewarned that this is a book you'll be reading to your children. The language is not geared to a 3, 4 or even 5 year old. Another difference I noticed is the art work. This is not a big, bold, get in your face excitement creator--as books for this age group tend to be. No, the art is gentle, just as the book is gentle. And you know what? That's just fine.

Sunshine is a book you can read to your child. It's a book you can play with, imitating the impossible combination of faces you will find there. And in the end it is as I have already said: a positive and bright story with a simple message.

I don't think this is a book for a 6-7 year old. But for the younger child? I'll give the book 4 stars.

SUNSHINE a chldren's book by Linda Hale was adorable with lovable illustrations. It's a motivational book for younger readers about a girl who loves to smile and make people happy. She meets an old man who was as persistent at being a grump as she was at trying to make him smile.

This story tells of how she manages to achieve changing a grumpy old man into a smiler and how compromise sometimes gets us what we want in the end.

This is for the very young reader and rates five stars. It's a lovely and very short story.

Sunshine, I'll Make You Smile
by
Linda Hales

Having just purchased this book both is paperback and E-Book version, it was delightful to compare the two. This is a book any parent will be happy to read to their children.

The author, Linda Hales has done an outstanding job of telling a sweet story of a little girl whose name is Sunshine. Ms. Hales takes a young reader on a journey as Sunshine sets out for the day looking to make someone smile.

In today's world where you find violence and unrest, it's nice to find a special book to cheer the young ones as you yourself smile reading the story to that special someone. Spreading cheer around herself, Sunshine makes it her delightful task of bringing joy to those who may otherwise be cranky, sad or just not happy.

This story gives a young reader a subconscious message that sharing glad times is far better than that of bad times and madness.

The art work in her books-both versions- are vivid and so full of color it makes you smile on it's own.

Congratulations Ms. Hale on preserving a message to the young that will fill their hearts with bliss that they can feel so good about.

I would recommend both versions for any young reader. After all, Sunshine will make you smile!

Sunshine--I'll Make You Smile
By Linda Hales

Sunshine--I'll Make You Smile, written by children's author, Linda Hales, is certain to delight young children in the 3-7 age group. Her character, a little blonde girl with a contagious smile, is a role model for little ones, who also love to smile and be happy -- most of the time.

This book will bring giggles when read aloud as a bedtime story, capturing the attention of young children with its moral and the captivating illustrations. It is a sweet story that allows young children to realize the power in such a simple thing as a smile. Would that there be more smiles in the world, it would be a better place, especially for children.

Author Linda Hales dedicates this charming book to Tammy, her own little sunshine girl. It is recommended that readers check out Hale's other children's books, including " Andy Roo and the Birthday Surprise.
