How We Are Smart

Following in the path of Dr. Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences, "How We Are Smart" looks at prominent, diverse people to help children appreciate the idea that there are eight ways to be smart:

Body Smart
Logic Smart
Music Smart
Nature Smart
People Smart
Picture Smart
Self Smart
Word Smart

Developed by Dr. Gardner and popularized by psychologist and educator, Dr.  Thomas Armstrong, multiple intelligences advance the notion that everyone is smart in his or her own way.  The book is perfect for introducing children to intelligences other than the traditional verbal and quantitative measurements.
