Dot is feeling a bit underappreciated. After all, Dot is only a dot, and what good is a dot? It looks like Dot could use a reminder of his important place in the world. How could a person see if he only had one dotted eye? And what would a dalmatian be without all its spots? More importantly, how could children ask for sweet treats without the dot in a question mark? Dot is about to get a big lesson on just how important he is—because there’s a special spot for every dot in this world! From author/illustrator Loryn Brantz comes a witty story about confidence and value. Interactive dialogue and illustrations encourage readers to point out missing dots on each page and makes Not Just a Dot a wonderful tool for teaching self-confidence.

Features an audio read-along! With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark - and follow where it takes us. Her teacher smiled. "Just make a mark and see where it takes you." Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can't draw - she's no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. "There!" she says. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti's journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds's delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.
