Button, Lana Willow’s Smile Kids Can Press, 2016. $16.95 PICTURE BOOK
Willow only feels like
smiling sometimes. When it time for school pictures she is worried that she
might not be in the mood to smile. But the smart photographer enlists her as
his smile creating assistant, and she is able to make her classmate smiles.
Will it work for her?
This is an odd book. Do a
lot of students have trouble smiling? Are there many kids who can’t smile
unless a rubber chicken is shook around? The illustrations are plain and
uninteresting. I see no reason to add this book to my library.
