All the Ways to Be Smart

Author(s): Davina Bell; Allison Colpoys (Illustrator)

Picture Books | Kids Book Fest 2018 | Kids' Reading Guide 2018-19

Smart is not just ticks and crosses,
smart is building boats from boxes.
Painting patterns, wheeling wagons,
being mermaids, riding dragons …


From the award-winning creators of The Underwater Fancy-dress Parade and Under the Love Umbrella comes this joyful ode to all the unique and wonderful qualities that make children who they are.

*SIGNED COPIES AVAILABLE*


We believe so strongly in this book that we're donating one copy for every ten that we sell to our friends Lost in Books to distribute through their Welcome Stories program.


Lost in Books is a kids' multilingual bookshop based in Fairfield, in south-western Sydney — Australia's most culturally diverse community. They offer a bountiful public program around books, literacy, multilingual conversation, and wellbeing. It's for children, young people and adults from Anglo-Australian andculturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

We're very proud to work with Lost in Books on this project and encourage everyone to read about more ways to support their work.
