All the Ways to be Smart

Publisher: Scribe

Review

Being smart is not just ticks and crosses and spelling things right. Being smart is building boats from boxes, painting pirates, wheeling wagons, being mermaids and riding dragons. You can be smart at rhyme and telling the time, but also making gooey green slime.

All The Ways to be Smart is an earnest and charming book celebrating the joys of all the wonderful qualities that make children who they are. The subtle and unique message is that getting excellent grades is not what makes you smart. Rather, it’s the value of learning through play which is beautifully illustrated and will captivate children’s imagination throughout the book.
