Sometimes Smart Is Good/A Veces Es Bueno Ser Listo
by Dena Luchsinger
Smart people can explain the world around us; strong people can keep us safe; talented people can show us things that are beautiful. It's good to be smart, and strong, and talented. But what is good about the people who don't have these abilities?
With sweet, sensitive illustrations, this English-Spanish bilingual book underscores the values of love, patience, and kindness, while teaching to young readers that all people - regardless of their abilities - are valuable as children of God. Sometimes smart is good, but unconditional love and acceptance is always good.
