Publisher Description

An innovative flip-over picture book for young kids, showcasing the full emotional range of their formative years. A fun, flip-over picture book for children that reads from both front and back. Smile Cry is an innovative picture book for young kids, showcasing the full emotional range of their formative years. Readers' follow three adorable characters - piglet, bunny and cat - as they react emotionally to a variety of events and circumstances from everyday life. From an 'ate all the pies' smile to an 'ice-cream plopping down cry'; from a 'cosy under blanket smile' to a 'need a band-aid quick cry', children will empathize with the tear-jerking calamity of a popped balloon or lost toy, or feel the smiley warmth of being tickled. It's the little things that touch the hearts of children the most, and Smile Cry typifies both the small joys and challenges that are the essence of childhood. Younger kids will respond to the soft whimsical illustrations, while older readers will learn more about the range of their emotions - how it's possible to cry with happiness and also smile with trepidation. The clever 'flip book' format means that the 'Smile' story reads from front to back, while the 'Cry' story reads from back to front, with both delicious narratives meeting in the middle. A heartfelt picture book that will be treasured for years, Smile Cry is perfect for ages 3 and upwards.

Review

"I love the concept of this book and think that it will be read over and over again in our house" A Slice of My Life "An innovative flip-format picture book for young children that showcases the full emotional range of childhood... This book will be invaluable to people who talk to children about their emotions." School Librarian "This sweet-as-pie book quickly became a favourite in our household. It's fabulous for little tots learning to understand and cope with the various shades of happy and sad (such as an "ate all the pies smile" or a "tutu in the wash cry") they can experience. Presented in flip-the-book format, the story explores these nuances of emotions through the lovable characters piglet, bunny and cat." Penny's Best of 2016 "...a wonderful book about feelings...ideal for use with kindergarten aged children" -- Cassie Mutimer Media Reviews "This picture book is sure to make you smile with its gorgeous illustrations and playful text. We'd highly recommend it." -- Abby Mellor Smile Cry "supports children developing the skills to comprehend, short, predictable texts on familiar topics...can be a stimulus in the teaching of writing, encouraging students to compose or retell their own similar stories"
