This book (“All The Ways To Be Smart”) is about how being “smart” isn’t just about intellectual “smartness” but instead can encompass kindness, being artistic, being a good friend, etc. Great for discussing how we are all different and celebrating all of the unique and wonderful qualities that make children who they are. P Maar wel een erg motiverend boek voor kinderen (en volwassenen), slim is niet alleen maar academisch maar ook in andere kleinere dingen, zoals dapper durven te zijn, beslissingen maken, te kunnen springen en kopjeduiken, aardig kunnen zijn.

Davina lives and works in Melbourne, where she still dreams about the Western Australian beaches while drinking a lot of very good Melbourne coffee. Joyful and vibrant … Allison Colpoys’ illustrations shimmer with movement and vivacity, with her loose-line illustrations and selective colour palette exuding a nostalgic retro charm. A needed reassurance that tests can’t measure everything, and that we need all kinds of kids to create a smart and inventive world. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. This process has meant younger and younger children are expected to demonstrate these skills and behaviours, and we talk about "school readiness" with three and four year olds, at least in my sector.

But saying "we're all smart in our own ways" is often code for, this kid isn't great at drawing/reading/maths whatever. Recommended to young children who wonder about smarts, and whether they have them, and who need a reminder that there are lots of ways to be intelligent.

It’s highly likely every child who reads this book will find something in it that shows they too are smart. This book is also beautifully illustrated and the two year old that I looked after absolutely loved it, he would often sit looking through the images on his own. Davina Bell and Allison Colpoys have done it again, following up the absolutely beautiful 'Under the Love Umbrella' with this gem!Positively illuminating, this books glows with spirit and gentle reminders that each of us is special and smart in our own unique way.

From the award-winning creators of The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade and Under the Love Umbrella comes this joyful ode to all the unique and wonderful qualities that make children who they are. Colpoys's ink, charcoal, and pencil drawings burst with a profusion of neon orange and green, literally highlighting each scene with an incandescence that more than matches the rhyming couplets' jauntiness. Many facets of 'being smart' are covered in this exploration of brilliance including: creativity, spacial awareness, ingenuity, empathy, numeracy .This paired perfectly with a lesson on Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences, and the 8 different modalities (art, music, word, people, self, math, body, and nature). With heartwarming rhyming text all about knowing what makes you special, All the Ways to Be Smart is a wonderful introduction to conversations about self-esteem. We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung of the Kulin Nations — the first and continuing custodians of the land on which our books are created. Vibrant colours and charming whimsical illustrations fill the pages with character, and the rhythmic, rhyming text makes it a delight to read out loud.

It would be cool to do a spin off of this and have kids dive into all they ways that they are smart! I appreciated the narrative, with its message about the many kinds of intelligence - emotional intelligence, creative intelligence - since I think many people (including kids) might think that academic intelligence is the only sort that matters.Some of the ways highlighted in a pleasing rhyme include creativity, physical activities, music, emotional sensitivity, memorizing information, math, and traditional academic knowledge .
