“Children spend most of their time smiling, laughing, learning, and playing, but some don’t. 'Where Is My Smile?' initiates conversations between a child and their grown-up. It reminds us to look at and recognise the signs of sadness in others.If children understand that love is a smile, as told in this beautiful book, then the world would be a much brighter place.”
Gyasi Sheppy

One day, a little boy wakes to find that his smile has vanished! He searches and searches, but it’s not in any the usual places. His family don’t seem to have it either. Where could his smile be?

Not to be discouraged, the boy decides to look outside. He makes all the necessary preparations for a big trip outdoors, just as he has seen his parents do. But when Mum and Dad notice their son’s oversized and mismatched clothes, they can’t help but laugh. The laughter seems infectious and, just like that, the boy finds his smile again — safe in the loving arms of his family.

This delightful picture book is perfect as a bedtime story, and to help little children understand that it’s okay to be sad sometimes, but we can always find our way through it.

Where Is My Smile? is the first in a new series of picture books from Natalie Reeves Billing focused on children’s mental health.
