Gilbert and the Search for the Lost Smile
Kenny Lamb Jon Buckner
When Gilbert can’t find his smile, he looks for it in all the usual places that have given him joy in the past—his toybox, computer, even the basement and attic where all his favorite old things are stored. But today, happiness evades Gilbert. He expands his search to the outside, even visiting his favorite swimming hole, but still no luck—“Not a smile to be found.”
His family notices Gilbert moping around, and what happens next takes Gilbert on a most unexpected journey—one in which he discovers from where happiness truly comes.
Share this journey with your child as Gilbert discovers what it means to be part of a loving family. It’s sure to put a smile on your own child’s face!
