The Dot by Peter H Reynolds is a delightful book about making your mark which shows what a little encouragement can do to foster creativity.
The words are simple, the pictures delightful and the message inspiring.
The author, has a website: peterhreynolds.com
He also has a blog, Stellar Cafe where he has written two posts about this book. The first answers 7 questions, the second on a stellar proverb nulla dies sine linea – no day without a line.
I gave The Dot to a friend who is an art teacher and she reads it to her classes at the start of each year.
It’s also available in Spanish. I’ve read it to my adult Spanish class and they enjoyed it at least as much as children do:
