rating: 5 of 5 stars
I appreciated the authors approach to intelligence. As Fred says "no brain is the same, no brain is the best, each brain finds its own special way." To teach children at a young age of their personal potential and also help acknowledge the potential of everyone around them is a wonderful gift to give. Society tries too often to lump us into categories and it is good to have a book for children that takes that and brakes the trend by teaching them early how to view themselves and others.
The Discussion guide is wonderful for Parents/Teachers/Coaches to create a dialogue with children and help reinforce the important concepts expressed in the story.
The rhyme and flow was comfortable to read aloud to my daughters.
The pictures were a fresh and different approach to childrens book illustration.
"Have fun with your brain every day. Brains do best when they play."
