Description

Algo no está bien de camino a la escuela por la mañana temprano. El día empezó oscuro cuando suele ser soleado. Así empiezan una serie de cambios que le dan la vuelta al día del pequeño Miles. Lo que era conocido y familiar de camino a la escuela, ahora parece distante, triste o deprimente. El tiempo. Los trabajadores de la comunidad. Hasta la perrita del vecino, Margarita. En la escuela, las cosas no mejoran para Miles. Allí le presentan una serie de reglas nuevas para ayudar a prevenir que se propaguen los gérmenes, y todos estos cambios le abruman, lo que se traduce en su propia ansiedad y depresión.

Pero con la ayuda de su paciente maestra, la Srta. Franklin, Miles aprende el valor de acostumbrarse a los cambios y ser positivo. Y también aprende que compartir una pequeña sonrisa, hasta una que te puedas meter en el bolsillo, puede aportar una nueva perspectiva y felicidad tanto a ti como a la gente de tu alrededor. Narrado a través de dulces ilustraciones y con texto en rima, Una sonrisa en el bolsillo es un recuerdo encantador sobre el poder de la positividad y la importancia de cuidarnos a nosotros mismos y a quienes nos rodean.


It’s the morning walk to school and it doesn’t feel right. The day has started gloomy, when it’s normally bright. And, so begins a series of changes that turns young Miles’ day upside down. Once friendly and familiar, everything on that school walk now seems distant, sad, or stressed. The weather. The community workers. Even the neighbor’s dog, Daisy.

At school, things don’t lighten up for Miles. There, he’s introduced to a series of new rules meant to help prevent the spread of germs, and all the change overwhelms him, translating into major anxiety and sadness of his own. But, with the help of his patient teacher, Ms. Franklin, Miles learns the value of embracing change and remaining positive. And, he also learns how sharing one little smile, even one you can keep in your pocket, can bring perspective and happiness to yourself and those around you.

More relevant than ever before in our current “pandemic era,” A Smile in Your Pocket provides caregivers with a fun storytime read that provides a conversation primer about good hygiene, social distancing, and coping with emotions.

Written in partnership with an accomplished child therapist, A Smile in Your Pocket combines sweet art and rhythmic text to tell a charming story that focuses on CASEL standards of social emotional development, and more specifically about combating negative emotions and the power of positivity.

This title is leveled using both the Lexile and Fountas & Pinnell reading level standards. Includes backmatter that cover tips for helping children cope with loneliness and isolation.
