So Many Smarts!
I didn’t know that I was smart about a specific thing or that you can be smart about anything. Anybody can have any smarts. No smarts are better than the other smarts. Like, “Oh, she’s smart about flowers, and he’s smart about gymnastics, and one of them is smart about love.” Some of them like science, math, exploring, music, writing, reading…you know all the stuff I’m talking about.
All the animals were standing on the log trees that they cut down that showed what they were smart about. I thought that was pretty cute.
