Smile Out Loud offers a variety of joyful poems to "spread happiness". Its unique structure features a note to the reader that invites opportunities to read/perform, write/recreate & celebrate poetry (smiles) all year long. Lots to imitate w/ the reminder: "Poetry has no rules!"

What could be better or more cheer inducing than sharing some happy/silly poems with a child? This collection includes some delightfully titled poems. Among them are Monstrous Faces, The Dragging Dragon, A brush with Danger, Memories of Smiles, I Wake Up with A Smile and Fun with Animal Names.

Each entry is short and accompanied by a colorful illustration. They encourage movement, using imagination, laughing and more. Truly an interactive read. Note: some of these poems do not rhyme but they always invite the reader in.

Many thanks to Quarto-Wide Eyed Editions and NetGalley for this title. All opinions are my own.
