I’m thrilled to discover a book that reassures (kids) that there are a lot of ways to excel and that we each have our own unique gifts’.

Vibrant colours and charming whimsical illustrations fill the pages with character, and the rhythmic, rhyming text makes it a delight to read out loud. Together with UK education agency Shapes for Schools, Scribble has developed an RSE resource pack for KS1/KS2 teachers, aimed at developing emotional literacy. Lovely illustrations, enlivened by an unusual colour palette, and pictures that work concertedly with the meaning of the text. One of the most pivotal messages that children need to hear and illustrated with a brilliant spectrum of colours that leap from the page and right into the heart.A needed reassurance that tests can't measure everything, and that we need all kinds of kids to create a smart and inventive world. All the Ways to be Smart is a brilliant, gorgeous book bursting with unconventional magic spells that prove science is so much more than mere logic, and that being smart is above all about being happy. This picture book from Australia has glowing colours that seem to leap off the page and rhyming text that children will very much enjoy chanting … The book is a jumbly rumble of busy, bright colours and kids doing fun things – along with di-nosaurs, birds and flowers and all kinds of creatures. 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.

Everything that a child does can be a form of smartness when it is approached in the right way and this is a really important lesson to remind children of all age groups.The pack, suitable for ages 6–8, is based around books by Allison Colpoys and Davina Bell, including All the Ways to be Smart, Under the Love Umbrella, and The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade. Davina Bell and Allison Colpoys have done it again, following up the absolutely beautiful 'Under the Love Umbrella' with this gem!

Colpoys’ illustrations, showing a busy, multiracial, multi-gifted cast, convey joyous variety and abundant compassion.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. This colourful picture-book provides an alternative perspective on the culture of academic achievement by celebrating a diversity of talents … Allison Colpoys’s illustrations celebrate a diversity of cultures too, offering a parade of beauty that will give children of all backgrounds and interests confidence in their own uniqueness. For neuro-atypical or otherwise differently-abled kids like JJ, a book like this can make them, and their caregivers, feel seen. stars for the illustrations but no stars for the text I'm afraid, reading lists can be really boring!

Simple, flowing words coupled with fluorescent illustrations (created from ink, charcoal, and pencil, then digitally assembled) give young readers a book brimming with examples of how they are smart all day, every day … Realistic illustrations show children of varying racial presentations joining sentient animals and benign, hairy monsters to confidently explore their world, real and imagined. Her award-winning and Notable picture books include All the Ways To Be Smart, All of the Factors of Why I Love Tractors, Under the Love Umbrella, The Underwater Fancy-dress Parade, Oh Albert! Learning your alphabet has never been so much fun as with this brilliantly funny book from a favourite author and illustrator Quentin Blake. After reading it with my 2nd graders, they were able to discuss all the wonderful ways they are smart, none of which had to do with the traditional definition. Fortunately now, there are many wonderful picture books for children that center around the idea of multiple intelligences, and today I’d like to introduce you to my new favorite— All the Ways to Be Smart by Davina Bell, illustrated by Allison Colpoys.

Some schools make a very big deal about this, because they want to appear better in comparisons with other schools.
