“Smart is not just ticks and crosses,
smart is building boats from boxes.
Painting patterns, wheeling wagons,
being mermaids, riding dragons.”
All the Ways to be Smart is a joyful story for kids, and parents and carers too, written by Davina Bell and illustrated by Allison Colpoys, the award-winning creators of Under the Love Umbrella and The Underwater Fancy dress Parade.
It's a lovely reminder for all of us that there are so many different ways to be smart, from maths and astronomy, to storytelling, music, fashion, kindness and so much more.
To read along with the gorgeous illustrations, get your own copy of the book at your favourite bookstore, or online at Scribble. All the Ways to be Smart is published by Scribble, an imprint of Scribe Publications.

Allison and Davina also spoke with Shevonne on Kinderling Conversation about what went into making the gorgeous and clever book, which you can hear below.
