He and his pup may look a bit different, but their hearts are as big as can be...

Bert is nervous. Born with an opening in his mouth that he feels makes him sound funny, the young boy doesn't like to speak up in first grade. But he's worried his friends won't even notice when he's out of school for surgery to fix it.

And when his mom comes to class to teach the students about his condition, will he find comfort in having supportive playmates?

In a gentle and educational story centered on a boy and his dog who both have a cleft lip and palate, youngsters will learn to appreciate and support their peers and each other. And with compassionate ideas of the various ways youth can help those with medical challenges, your little ones will develop minds and hearts that genuinely care.

The Day Bert Smiled is an inspirational children's book suitable for ages 6-9. If you or your child like relatable characters, themes of empathy and kindness, and sweet lessons, then you'll love Christine Maier's charming tale.
