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.

I recently purchased this book for my granddaughter and she can't get enough of it. Her Mom reads it over and over again to her as it is, far and away, her favourite bedtime story. She is only 2 but already recognizes many of the words and has practically memorized the story. Her favourite part is when Sunshine is making faces to get her great grandpappy to smile! Even at her young age, she already understands how important it is to smile and how smiling can make other people happy. It is colorfully illustrated on every page which youngsters find highly appealing. Without giving the story away, I can only say that this book should be on every child's bookshelf.

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

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.
