Jimmy, the Nature SMART Ninja is the fourth book in Dr. Mary Massey’s SMART Parts series
about Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Jimmy is introduced to the reader in the series’
introductory book, Ellie Rae Discovers Eight Ways to be SMART. Each subsequent book
highlights one character and his/her “SMART part” or dominant intelligence. Jimmy is Nature
SMART and has a great love and innate understanding of nature. He is interested in animal
habitats, weather systems, and plant life. His interaction with his friends is often times based on
his naturalist abilities and the conversations that emerge from playing outdoors together.
