Smart is not just ticks and crosses,
Smart is building boats from boxes

Ensuring children that there are many different ways to be smart, this is the perfect book to pick up and read aloud with children in your setting.

The rhyming text alongside the enchanting colourful pictures will give you plenty of opportunities to explore the language, discoveries and the specialness of just being yourself.

Raise children’s self- esteem by talking about how they don’t need to be academic but that being practical, creative and empathetic are also ways to be smart. Choose one of the colourful pages and begin!

With our book recommendations, we want to help you spark a conversation that leads children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Have the courage to go beyond the obvious STEM connections and embrace all questions that may come out of your discussion with the children.
