Have you ever noticed that rule number three of my book giveaways is always the same? "Please pay it forward." Sometimes I include a smiley face :). I always tell my students that a smile, a kind gesture, a positive sticker, a compliment, or a random act of kindness could have a profound impact on someone's day. It could lead an individual down a different path or, to use a trite expression, turn a frown upside down.
I bet Amelia, the cheerful character in David Ezra Stein's Because Amelia Smiled, could even brighten one of Alexander's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days.
Are you ready to smile? If yes, press play.
Borrow Because Amelia Smiled from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
I am giving away one copy of Because Amelia Smiled.
