We cry when we are sad and we smile when we are happy.
Smile Cry is an exploration of emotions through familiar everyday scenarios, such as, cuddling a toy, going on a ride, saying goodbye and being in the dark. The muted illustrations, in various pastel shades, are gentle in their communication of feelings that may be unfamiliar and confusing to young readers.
Smile Cry is recommended for readers aged 3 years and over and is a fantastic introduction to situations and feelings that children will undoubtedly face in their lives, through a child-friendly and fun medium.
- Look at the illustrations and identify the characters’ emotions based purely on their body language and facial expressions
- Discuss certain things or events in your life and the accompanying emotion/s, for example, feeling scared and excited on your first day of school.
