Will, the Word SMART Wizard – A book about Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences
Will, the Word SMART Wizard is the second in a series of books about Dr. Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Will is one of the characters from the series introductory book, Ellie Rae Discovers Eight Ways to be SMART. He is Word SMART and loves jokes, puns, rhymes and word plays.
In this rhyming early childhood story, we see Will using his Word SMART abilities to enhance some of his other multiple intelligences or SMART parts. As children learn about their SMART parts, they are fortified in their sense of self by better understanding their strengths, valuing the strengths of others, and learning how to work together to grow and learn.
