Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop. We've created the Tattered Cover Picture Book of the Month (formerly called Kids' V.I.B.) to highlight real stand-outs among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers.
Our latest selection is:
All the Ways to Be Smart by Davina Bell, illustrated by Allison Colpoys
“Smart is not just being best
at spelling bees, a tricky test.
Or knowing all the answers ever…
Other things are just as clever.”
This book celebrates the myriad ways one can be smart—knowing the right thing to say, being welcoming to a shy friend, using your imagination, taking chances. A needed reassurance that tests can’t measure everything, and that we need all kinds of kids to create a smart and inventive world. This book is comforting, inspiring, and fun!” —Bethany Strout, Director of Buying
