WHY WE LOVE IT: We're taught from such a young age that being smart means getting good grades & knowing the right answers. But this book gives us a new vocabulary for how 'smart' translates to things like being kind & intuitive & feeling. It is being empathetic, having fun, thinking creatively, being brave, adventurous, curious and having an imagination. This is a book that really celebrates the multifaceted qualities of what makes us human.
