Our Mission

Project SMILE (See Miracles In Life Everyday) philosophy is based on lots of different factors and elements, but it all stems basically from one main point:  We are on this planet to support one another as human beings, first, last, and always.  Project  SMILE has historically proven time and again throughout the years that it’s possible to achieve more and to be more successful by adhering to this basic premise.

Project SMILE Book Club
As an organization for children, teens, and adults Project SMILE  has the vision and commitment to inspire those looking to begin or advance their own reading goals.  Project SMILE. challenge anyone who wants to become a better reader and a bigger success. –By actions & deeds - adding a human , personal touch is the key to our success, “especially, in today’s hectic and often dispassionate busy world.”  ~SaRita Dean, R.D.H.
Business: A portion of each book club meeting is usually devoted to announcements. For example, members may want to tell others about upcoming events at local libraries or schools, or discuss the book club schedule.

Book Discussion

Discussion is the heart of our book club, and the majority of time is devoted to discussion. Depending upon the size of the group and the ages of the children, discussion can range from 20 minutes to about an hour. Whether our book club’s discussion is led by parents, children, or both, we recommend you to have some questions prepared ahead of time.

Extension Activities
Project SMILE book clubs provide opportunities for members to complete activities to accompany books. For instance, after reading “I Like Myself” by Karen Beaumont, parents and their prek through second-graders participated in a read aloud.

I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont | Read Aloud
 High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages children to appreciate everything about themselves—inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here's a little girl who knows what really matters. At once silly and serious, Karen Beaumont's joyous rhyming text and David Catrow's wild illustrations unite in a book that is sassy, soulful . . . and straight from the heart. The sturdy board book is just right for little hands. Book Club Sign-up | Contact Us!

The mission of our book club is to encourage reading and enlightenment, open members up to new genres and authors, create discussion and provide an opportunity to meet new people in the community. We try to remind members that they may not like every book chosen for discussion, but on the other hand, might find a new author or genre to enjoy reading. Project SMILE Book club offers a chance to try new things.

Our children book club K-2 meets the first Tuesday morning* of each calendar month in our library conference room from 10:00 to 11:30am– Young Public Library.

Story Time | Houston Public Library

Story Time & Awesome Outing

If you haven’t been to a story time at the Houston Public Library, you are missing out! Nearly all of the local branches have amazing story time presentations with everything from animal visits and live music to crafts. We're never disappointed after a visit to the library, but sometimes we want to do something different, especially when the weather's nice.  Is your child the exploring type? Try an awesome train rain at your local zoo.
