Peter H Reynolds introduces International Dot Day

Small dots grow into bigger dots and before you know where you are the small dot has grown into International Dot Day.

Peter Reynolds the author and illustrator of The Dot joins Nikki Gamble #InTheReadingCorner to explain how a simple dot can help to encourage children's confidence in their own creativity.

The Dot
One little dot marks the beginning of Vashti's journey of surprise and self-discovery in Peter H. Reynolds' multiple award-winning modern classic. In this inspiring, award-winning story of self-expression and creativity from Peter H.

Reynolds, illustrator of Ish and the Judy Moody series, Vashti thinks she can't draw. But her teacher is sure that she can. She knows that there's a creative spirit in everyone, and encourages Vashti to sign the angry dot she makes in frustration on a piece of paper.

This act makes Vashti look at herself a little differently, and helps her discover that where there's a dot there's a way... With wit, charm and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds encourages even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark - and follow where it takes us.
