Montessori Book Club: All The Ways to be Smart

“If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

This book has been on our wish list for a while as its such an important topic to explore with children. The idea that everyone has something important to contribute and that unfortunately, the world does not often recognize all the different gifts and abilities of people.

We love the retro colours and overall look of it. But mostly we love the message it brings to the small people being read to.

“Smart is kindness when there’s crying.” Was one that we as a Montessori family hovered over for a while because this is something that is so often overlooked.

I also appreciate that the pages reflect a variety of children without drawing attention to it. It’s so very important at all children see themselves represented in the books that they are reading, without the book specifically touching on their differences (although books that do that are incredibly important too).

We are so grateful for Scribble Kids Books for sending us this that we are giving TWO copies away!! Follow this link to our Instagram Page to enter.
