How We Are Smart

By Asian Reporter

It’s never too early to be introduced to the theory of multiple intelligences, and the youngsters at whom this book is directed may well see their families and friends, and, most important, themselves, as smarter once they have read this book… The author has the good sense not to include his own opinions about which of these people are smart in what ways, but invites readers to do this on their own. The best part of a wonderful book is the activities section, which contains the suggestion that readers not only observe people around them and think about how they are smart, but tell them… Sean Qualls’s compelling illustrations contain carefully crafted portraits of the individuals who represent so many kinds of intelligence, combined with rough sketches ion the background that invite young readers to fill in the blanks with their imaginations.
