When someone smiles, who knows where it goes? Baby smiles at Mommy, Mom keeps it for a while . . . and then passes it on. As the smile begins its joyful journey–moving from a first-grade class to a soccer team, from Gran to a garbage man, even to a puppy–it spreads happiness throughout the community, bringing everyone together. A sunny picture book guaranteed to make kids SMILE!
