The Smiley Book of Colors. Picture Book GIVEAWAY!

Picture Book of Smiles in Unexpected Places

This book makes me smile. I can attest that it appeals to older kids because my 6th grader snagged it when it arrived and asked to keep it.

The Smiley Book of Colors by Ruth Kaiser is a clever picture book that captures smiley faces in everyday objects. It also teaches colors. An upside red purse is really a smiley face! Can you see it? What I love about it is that it also teaches kids to see, REALLY see, like an artist. Is there a smiley face lurking about? Probably! You just have to see it.

This book will make preschoolers giggle, older children want to borrow your camera and go on a Smiley hunt, and adult grin. Ruth even has a Smiley song you can link to on your blog!

And the best part is, every photo of a Smiley uploaded to Ruth’s website “earns” $1 to be donated to Operation Smile, which pays for surgeries for children with facial deformities such as cleft palate.

To win a copy of this book, please leave a comment!

Treasure Hunt Time!

Now it’s time to start searching for Smileys in your neighborhood! When you find one snap a pic and upload it to Spontaneous Smiley on the “Share Your Smiley” page  using “WOW” in your Smiley title.
Just one Smiley makes you a Smiley Captain! Not only will you brighten people’s day with your Smiley AND help raise money for Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that helps children with facial deformity receive the surgery they need, but you’ll be entered in a contest just for Ruth’s WOW friends to win a copy of The Smiley Book of Colors. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, April 17! Now grab your camera and start searching for Smileys!
Congrats to Valerie! She won the book!
