The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds

The Dot is a beautiful story that demonstrates how one good teacher can affect the hidden artist in any of us. Vashti’s teacher simply tells her to “make a mark and see where it takes you.” Most children (and adults) can relate to feeling like they can’t draw (or write or create) and can learn a lot from this simple story. The illustrations are simple, whimsical and expressive. I love it.
