Ellie Rae Discovers Eight Ways to be SMART: A book about Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences

Written by Mary R. Massey, Ed.D.
Illustrated by April Bensch

Ellie Rae spends a morning at the field, watching her friends play a game of softball. She begins to recognize a special quality in each friend, soon discovering these qualities are each friend’s “SMART PART”. When she joins her friends, she realizes the eight friends combined make up the eight “SMART PARTS” or intelligences described in Dr. Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI), introduced in his 1983 book, Frames of Mind. Traditionally, we value verbal and logic skills in our culture and view them as “intelligences,” but what about the dancer, the singer, the artist, the athlete, the forest ranger? Everyone doesn’t fit into the cookie-cutter definition of intelligence. This book introduces to children the notion they are SMART in their own special way and they have the ability to strengthen their intelligences or SMART parts to reach their full potential!
