Product Description

Here is a short, simple book that says so much. Vashti sits with a blank piece of paper in art class and says, “I just can’t draw.” The teacher asks her to “make a mark and see where it takes you.” Vashti jabs the paper and makes a dot; her teacher asks her to sign it. The next day, Vashti sees her dot “All framed in swirly gold!” From there Vashti explores her creativity (which is not how our children will put it, they will just say, “she’s making a lot of pretty dots.” Reynolds inspires others and finishes with an “aww” ending that just makes you want to hug the book. This is NOT a treacly message book, it is a sweet, accessible story that resonates for all ages. Children’s Literature Magazine

Born in Canada, in 1961, Peter Reynolds shared his entrance into the world with his twin brother, Paul. Together they started to write and “publishing” their own books and newspapers when they were seven years old with the help of the Xerox in dad’s office. In highschool, one teacher will mark Peter Reynolds’s life, the same teacher the Reynolds dedicates the book “The dot”. Peter is know today as a writer, storyteller and illustrator, and it’s with the same enthusiasm and energy that he delivers into every project that he creates. Still, his passion for education is his the driving power. Much of his time is dedicated to helping children, specially the “difficult” ones. “I was one of them. Not everyone has the chance of having a teacher that sees the potential in them.”
