About the Author:

Cindy McKinley has always loved working with and helping children. An elementary school teacher, she has a Masters Degree in Reading from Eastern Michigan University.

The inspiration for One Smile came from Cindy'’s desire to show children the powerful blessings that can flow from a simple act of kindness. "We often have no idea," she says, "how our generous actions affect those around us."

Cindy lives in Milford, Michigan with her husband Shawn, their children Jordan and Justin, and Mittens the family cat. An avid reader, she also enjoys photography, tennis, and volunteering as a tutor.

Mary Gregg Byrne

Mary Gregg Byrne's love affair with art began when she was a little girl. Although she is well-versed in a variety of crafts and fine arts, water color is her primary media. "I love the beauty of water color," she says. "It is alive. It creates with the artist."

Inspired by the beauty of the human face, Mary especially enjoys painting people. "I hope that my paintings can offer a moment of transcendence, a place of light and beauty," she says.

Mary lives in Bellingham, Washington, where she enjoys watching the children play as her garden grows.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-On the way to the bus, a little girl smiles brightly at a young man sitting on a park bench. He has recently lost his job and is feeling discouraged, but Katie's smile inspires him to start looking for a new one. The young man in turn helps a woman change her flat tire; the woman, feeling grateful, leaves a large tip for a waitress; the waitress uses the tip to buy food for a picnic for her children, and they invite another family to share with them; etc., etc., etc. In the end, Katie and the man are reunited when he has a new position as a mechanic and repairs her mother's car. This enables the child to attend her grandfather's birthday party. The purpose of the story is to show how even the smallest act of kindness can powerfully impact the lives of others, but the events seem manipulated. Also, the waitress's tip enables her to buy sodas, potato salad, fried chicken, and a soccer ball, which seems highly unlikely. While the full-bleed, full-spread pictures of Lisa and the people she meets are colorful and competently done, this is an additional purchase.
