This week a revised and updated version of my book for children, You’re Smarter Than You Think: A Kids’ Guide to Multiple Intelligences, was published by Free Spirit Publishing. The book includes a new chapter on Gardner’s possible ninth intelligence (existential intelligence – the intelligence of concern with ultimate life issues), which I call in the book ”Life Smart.”
I also integrate Life Smart into the chapters on all the other eight intelligences. Finally, the book includes updated and expanded resources at the end of each chapter. I hope that parents, educators, and kids will find this revised and expanded edition of You’re Smarter Than You Think useful in understanding how children think, how they develop, and how they can realize their full potential in life.
