The Dot is the story of Vashti -a little girl struggling in her art class- and the teacher that inspired her
to overcome and create many pieces for her school's art show. Through her project, Vashti is also
able to help inspire another child. It is a great little book with a positive message for children and
adults alike about the creative spirit in all of us. Reynolds is also the author of The Word Collector,
Lincoln Elementry's all school book this year. The word collector is another story with a positive
message about the power of words.
