“I miss your sunny smile. How’d you lose it? Where’d it go? Let’s go searching for a while.” Having a bad day is never fun, but it can be especially difficult for young children to understand that sad feelings are temporary. Through gentle rhymes and warm illustrations, we see a mother helping her son find his smile again.
“An ode to a child’s love for their teddy bear… Adamson’s text has a gentle bounce, like a familiar lullaby… Zimanski’s illustrations bring the story to life… Adults will relate to the feeling of eagerly trying to cheer up their little ones, while children will no doubt connect with the love of a most precious stuffed animal or toy… A sweet childhood experience captured in an age-appropriate way.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Deb Adamson’s delightful book reminds small children that after a while, there’s always a smile.” – Shawn Achor, Positive Psychology Expert and NYT Best-selling Author of The Happiness Advantage and Big Potential
“Written in rhyme, this sweet board book shows that sadness is a normal part of life. Warm and playful illustrations by Anne Zimanksi encourage a bright mood and provide soothing comfort. And let’s not forget the ending, sure to delight and put a smile on any young child’s face.” — Moni Ritchie Hadley, Good Reads With Ronna
“…Written by Deb Adamson and illustrated by Anne Zimanski, a tender board book about finding your way out of a bad mood… Simple and sweet. The theme here is immediately recognizable and fairly universal: we all have bad days, and sometimes a loved one can help cheer us through distraction and kind encouragement. The relationship between the child and mother characters is cute, and the resolution is satisfying… This is a sweet, short read… a nice pick-me-up story for young bookworms, and it’s Baby Bookworm approved!” – The Baby Bookworm
