Title: The Dot
Why I Love This Book: It is simple, but has a great message. The young student in this story doesn't think she can draw, and feels frustrated with art. But after some encouragement from her teacher, she explores the world of art through creating dots, and finds her own sense of accomplishment and success. I love that this book supports the idea that creativity, uniqueness and individuality should always be celebrated- not only in art, but in life! Kids should have opportunities to freely create their own masterpieces, even if it is just a dot.
