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.

Such an adorable idea with a great message on each page. It's fun finding smiley faces when we are out and about - a smile around every corner and practically in every bite. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to smile!

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!

Smiles not only boost your mood, they are also contagious. Seeing the positive and the smiles in everything will improve your life. The rhyming words and cheerful message wrap around smiley faces found in everyday life; such as headphones, coffee pots and wagon tongues. If you look, you can find a smile anywhere. Each page has pictures with every day things that have a smile on it. Each page features a different color. The book teaches colors while also teaching about cheerfulness. The age group for this book is 3 to 6, but adults will enjoy the book just as much as the children. If you are interested in submitting your own photo, there is a website that donates $1 for every photo uploaded, to Operation Smile. Operation Smile provides free surgeries for children born with facial deformities. So this book is not only fun, cute and uplifting; it is supporting a good cause.
This book is for ages 3 to 6.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Literature in exchange for my honest review.
