Book Talk Tuesday {The Dot}

The book I'm talking about this Tuesday is a beautifully illustrated picture book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. It is about a girl named Vashti who thinks she can't draw and how she finds with encouragement from her teacher that anyone can. It's an important message of never giving up and spreading joy to others. She passes along her advice when a boy at the end of the story says he can't draw. I love how the story comes full circle and how she learns from the teacher.

  1. My first graders used to read this story. I loved the message and always got goose bumps when we read it! :)

    1. Yes, I love it! I love reading aloud and feel the message is wonderful and relatable to a primary age group.
