The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize The super-talented Sophy Henn, of Where Bear? and Pom Pom the panda fame, has created a truly joyous new picture book. A little girl – in stylish capri pants and a sombrero – skips across the pages encouraging her friends to share a smile, and pass it on! Sometimes, the book acknowledges, it’s hard to be cheerful, but look around and you’ll find happiness or, just when you least expect it, a smile will be passed back to you. There’s a variety of action-packed scenes – a swimming pool (with an octopus), a roller coaster ride. The illustrations have a child-like quality, bold blocks of colour against bright, bright greens, pinks, yellows and blues, but the scenes are very skilfully composed and it’s fabulous to look at. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Pass it on by Sophy Henn

This is a joyful and uplifting picture book about finding happiness in the smallest of things, from picture book star Sophy Henn - World Book Day illustrator and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.

Reviews

The joy of a book with double-page spreads filled with diverse images of children having fun. The simple text and refrain work beautifully in urging readers to celebrate and share the joys and everyday discoveries life brings, including the need to be sociable and to look on the bright side while acknowledging true feelings. Ideal for preparing children for new experiences and first separations. -- The Guardian
