A real can-do book...Feisty drawings make this book enjoyable to look at and empowering to cynical little souls who just can't do stuff, and don't care either. The Guardian ...the quirky little story reminds children (and their parents) that whatever it is you can do, you should just get on and do it. The Observer
Create your own adventure! The Dot, Peter H. Reynolds's award-winning classic, offers inspiration - while a blank book and coloured pencils provide the means. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.See all Product Description

She is 7 but I think it would also appeal to younger readers, especially those just starting school. On receiving this book she read it twice. It is such a delight to read and visually stunning. It strikes a perfect balance between text and images.
If your child has ever said "but I can't do it", this is the book for them.
Can't thank Amazon reviwers here enough for directing me to this beautiful book.
I hadn't heard of this one but very pleased to have discovered it.
Update: My daughter is now 8 and brimming with new found confidence, it has even been noted on her school report.
Was this book responsible? Well maybe not entirely, but I'm sure it has a special place in her heart. A book to treasure.
A story about a little girl who believes she can’t draw. One day her teacher gets her to draw a dot, asks her to sign it and then displays it on the wall. The little girl then believe she can draw as she does a whole gallery of her artistic dots using different colours to make new colours. She even made a HUGE one. At the gallery a little boy looks at her dots and says he wishes he could draw like her. She said that he could, handed him a pen and told him to draw a squiggle. She looks at it and says sign it. He signs it.
Teachers - This is simply a beautiful book and must get into the hands of all primary teachers. It is easy to relate to and can help to engage all leaners into being creative - being creative in their own way!
Themes: colours, changes, emotions, creativity, self esteem, artwork, sizes.
- Children could draw their special dots and mix colours just like the little girl in the story does.
- Children could have their confidence in art boosted by this story. They could act out the story one each other to value each others work.
- Children could discuss the sizes of dots they can draw using mathematical knowledge e.g. bigger, smaller, biggest, smallest, larger etc.
- Children could create a group piece of art using dots. This can develop their social skills and co-operation.
Would highly recommend getting this book for your classroom or for your own bookshelf at home!

Lovely story, most suitable for around 6 up as the concept is a little tricky for my 4 year old and took a lot of explaining. Read morePublished 1 month ago by zoe
