Reviews - What do customers think about How Am I Smart?
Excellent book for any parent or teacher Mar 10, 2007
This book is a continuation from Dr Kathy's teaching and lecturing and is written not just on the theoretical, but on a very practical basis. This book has been needed for a long time: it will challenge and inform all parents and/or educators how to identify and work with the God given strengths within each child/teenager. It is an easy to read book with some real gems and "aha" moments. The first two chapters provide a background to the multiple intelligences laid out in the next 8 chapters.
Dr Kathy has provided a great insight for parents into the Gardner classification of multiple intelligencies. If you care about your children, this is a "must read".
Loved IT! Mar 9, 2007
This is a must read for anyone who has children, works with children or is around children in any way. If you want to inspire and encourage children to be all God designed them to be, then this is the book for you. I discovered SO much about myself, my husband, my son, my nieces and nephew (many of which are smart in different ways than I am). I loved the way this book is written in easy to read English but in depth enough to give you real information. Also included are many bible references which are GREAT for giving to your children. I loved it so much that I am buying 3 more copies - one for my sister, one for my son's teacher and one for my church library.
