Staff Reviews

“Smart is not just being best

at spelling bees, a tricky test.

Or knowing all the answers ever…

Other things are just as clever.”

This book celebrates the myriad ways one can be smart—knowing the right thing to say, being welcoming to a shy friend, using your imagination, taking chances. A needed reassurance that tests can’t measure everything, and that we need all kinds of kids to create a smart and inventive world. This book is comforting, inspiring, and fun!

— Bethany Strout, Director of Buying


Celebrates the myriad ways for kids to be smart--being empathic, artistic, athletic, and inquisitive.

A tender, funny, and exquisitely illustrated picture book celebrating all the unique and wonderful qualities that make children who they are.

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.
