" I'm reading "Each Kindness" to the upper elementary kids, but needed something with a happier ending for the primary grades. One Smile is a perfect example of a little action setting off a chain reaction: a "pay it forward" with emotions. Very appropriate for K-2. " said.

" Simple gestures, rippling kindness and true smiles are the stars of this inspiring invitation to share some brightness and chance a wave of well-being.You can listen in on our chat about this book on our Just One More Book!

"This book was amazing, the way one girl's smile touched a man's heart and brought kindness to the world. This book is a great book to read to a class to show what kindness is about and helping others.

I had looked at the cover thinking that this was going to be the worst book a reader could come upon. But this book was mind-sucking, the way it turned a lesson into a full fiction story. It gave facts without exactly saying it and this book was- well, I don't really know what to say.

The illustrations were amazing. The illustrator used watercolors with water to create a beautiful painting that readers will be shocked about. Part of the reason I read this book was because of the illustration on the cover. It was like a real smile lighting up my body and sharing it to the world.

Overall, this book was amazing and I look forward to reading more books by McKinley.

"This is a lovely story that shows how kind acts can not only help others, but also be returned. The concept of karma is depicted within the pages, as one good turn begets another and the entire story comes full circle. The story is very similar to the story Because Amelia Smiled and both show how small acts of kindness matter.

The illustrations are colorful and very expressive and complement the story nicely. We also really enjoyed reading the back pages, which offer 'Thoughtful Questions to Ponder With Your Family" as well as information about the Pay It Forward Foundation (see http://www.payitforwardfoundation.org) We also tackled the challenge, which asks the family to work together to think of 20 simple acts of kindness.

Overall, I thought this was a very heartwarming story and really shows how little acts of kindness can make a person's day. We really enjoyed reading this book together.
