“The Smiley Book of Colors”

This book, by Ruth Kaiser, is so cute and ingenious.  It’s about how it’s your decision what your attitude is like, but it’s written so simply that kids could definitely understand it.  Plus, each pair of pages is about a different color AND each picture is a smiley face of some sort.  Everything is coordinated…it’s awesome!

I read this with my 4-year old tonight and we spent the majority of the time picking out the smiley faces and determining what they were made of.  She got all of the colors right (except white, which I can understand because it was white letters on a blue page).  I couldn’t turn the page until she had found every smiley and we figured out what the smiley was made out of.

This book would be great for preschoolers and under (to be read to) and probably ok for a kindergartener or first grader to read to a younger sibling.  The message is a good one that could resonate with anyone – even adults.

I received this book from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
