Perfect for Read Aloud
In the beginning of the school year, my son’s art teacher mysteriously displayed dots around the elementary school. Because I had yet to discover this wonderful book, I didn’t know what the dots meant. It wasn't until I was searching on Amazon for Spanish books for kids that I discovered the answer.
My son instantly recognized the cover and said, "¡Ese libra me gusta!" I had read all the wonderful reviews for the original English version of "The Dot", but I was curious to see how well it translated – and I was pleasantly surprised!
The story is about a young student who believes she’s unable to draw anything in art class. The teacher urges her to simply make a mark. When she does, the door of creativity opens.
I have two little ones that always want me to draw for them because they don't trust their ability; I always tell them to just start drawing. I love this book because it empowers them to use their inner artist to express themselves on paper. And of course, it does the same for me, too.
Have you read the book? What did you think? Be sure to leave a comment.
