Format: Hardcover
This book was delivered automatically in our Junior Library Guild order, and it has become one of my all-time favorites as a librarian.
When Vashti angrily stabs a dot onto an empty art class assignment, her teacher wisely follows through with a lesson in life by framing her dot for all to see.
This little bit of attention takes Vashti to new heights by allowing her to take that dot and see where it leads her. She paints all sorts of dots and gains new confidence.
What the story really teaches us is to try, and to start with the tiniest of dots to begin our journeys. As my library class discussed the theme, many of the kids brought up "dots" in their own lives, such as learning how to roller skate, sink a free-throw, or turn a cartwheel. We all have to start somewhere!
And as Vashti's teacher told her when she finished that first dot, "Sign it!"
This little book is truly an inspiration, and the kids loved it. I want my own copy!

This book actually has an ageless appeal to all of us who feel 'I'm not an artist'. I'm a middle school art teacher, and it also charmingly shows how a gentle nudge by a teacher can start a snowball of creativity!

Format: Hardcover
Reynolds does a fantastic job showing how someone can be creative or artistic and not even know it. I picked up this book at an elementary book fair first because I thought it was well written and illustrated. Second because I want to help my children realize they have hidden talents. And third because my husband is an art teacher in high school and his students are constantly telling him they can't draw.
This book not only teaches that anyone can be artistic but it teaches that creativity is not something only some of us are born with - it is something we all have inside of us, we just need to find a little bit of inspiration to bring it out. In Vashti's case, it was her teacher framing her dot and hanging it by her desk.
I recommend this book for anyone: kids, adults, teenagers.

Format: Hardcover
A simple little book with a big message. I used this book with eight multi-age groups of children today as they arrived at my classroom for a short art lesson. It raised smiles and inspired confidence and every single student enthusiastically launched into painting their own dot pictures. I think everyone, adults as well as children, can identify with the little girl in this story.

Vashti thinks she's a terrible artist. Her art teacher challenges her to draw a dot. When Vashti sees her finished dot on display behind the teacher's desk, she decides she can do better. The beautifully simple illustrations add to this sweet book about finding hidden talents.

I teach art to adults who have never considered themselves artistic. This little book reinforces the idea that everyone has creativity...the challenge is just finding a way to let it out.
