A book about Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences
Authored by Mary R. Massey Ed.D. Illustrated by April Bensch
Lee, the Number SMART Neighbor is the 8th book in Dr. Mary R. Massey’s award-winning SMART Parts series. It focuses on the mathematical/logical intelligence, which along with the verbal/linguistic intelligence, is the limited focus of traditional education. Although clearly important, focusing only on these two intelligences vastly limits our perception of children and their potential and thus limits their academic success. This book demonstrates ways to use the logical/mathematical intelligence, or Number SMART part, to strengthen other intelligences, which is vital to teaching the whole child.
