Keep Smiling is a celebration of the most universal symbol of hope, joy and positivity - a smile! Written and read by Dame Floella Benjamin, the bestselling author of Coming to England.

Vina's Mum has always told her that a smile is the best gift you can give someone. And as Vina loves smiling more than anything else, she gives the gift of her smile to anyone who needs it. But on her first visit to her new school, Vina's own smile gets a bit . . . lost. She can't find it under the slide, or on the climbing frame. Then, a smile appears, in the most unexpected place!

Brimming with the vibrant colours and charm of Ewen’s illustrations – Keep Smiling is a joyful, sensitive and heart-melting celebration of that most universal symbol of hope, joy and positivity... a smile.
