About the Author:

The author is an educator, an experienced teacher, teacher trainer, school reviewer, and curriculum content developer with exposure working with students and teachers in India. Her hobby is writing short stories, articles, and poetry. 


About the Book:

We mainly considered intelligence as an individual's mental powers. It is mostly measured by conducting IQ tests, and exams, etc. But the author wants teachers/parents to understand their child's intelligence by what interests them.

The book is divided into two sections:

 1) To understand your kids' interests and intelligence.

2) To be available in the present with your kid. (expressed via poetry)


Each child is born with a unique set of qualities. They’re born with multiple intelligence depending on their home and school environment. The most powerful organ of the human body is the Brain if someone exercises it properly. Kids enjoy what interests them the most. And they excel in the same. The author has also explained many terms like the philosopher, the questionnaire, the more introvert, the visualizer, the mover, and the music lover, etc.


The 7th class kids have expressed themselves in their diaries about what they love and enjoy the most. In the book, the kids have explained what makes them happy during school hours.


There are a few exercises at the end of each chapter. Each exercise helps you to identify what your kid must do to enhance the skill. You can expect a few renowned names of those personalities who have got an interest in a particular category.


There is an infinite number of skills but not everyone excels at everything. It's better to pick up a skill and become better at it. The basic skills are communication, solving, creativity, imagination, and perception, etc.


Who the Book Is For?


  • For parents to discover their child’s true potential.
  • For teachers to identify what kids have an interest in.
  • For kids to explore unique skills


 How Is This Book Helpful?


  • How can kids develop imagination and confidence?
  • How do teachers/parents help their kids to achieve?


In the end, it is the responsibility of a teacher or a parent to analyze what kids are good at. The author has thrown light on the same where she discusses:

  • How can we help our kids discover their intelligence?

 The author has done justice with the book by sharing deep knowledge. The writing style is lucid. I highly recommend the book to all the parents of the age above 10 years old. If you’re a parent and a teacher, You should order your copy now.
