This delightfully illustrated reader is one of a series that uses the revolutionary educational theory of multiple intelligences to address such issues as dealing with bullies, listening, and boredom, as well as common academic stumbling blocks such as multiplication, reading comprehension, and spelling. Young readers will travel down Intelligence Avenue guided by Brilliant Brain and Magnificent Mind, in search of tools to help them grasp these difficult social and learning skills. Along the way, they will encounter the Smart Parts: Music Smart, Picture Smart, Body Smart, Number Smart, Self-Smart, Nature Smart, World Smart, and People Smart—personifications of the eight known multiple intelligences—who provide nuggets of knowledge to help overcome the problem at hand. An original rhyme at the beginning of each story introduces children to the coming adventure; teacher/parent guide provides lesson plans in tandem with each book.
