“Dot” is a story about creativity and imagination. Dot demonstrates her love of making artwork by using her imagination to plan and execute her many projects. Lyrical rhyming text makes reading fun while introducing wonderful art vocabulary such as shape, form, sculpture and doodle. And to top it off, Dot introduces famous artists like Monet, O’Keeffe, Matisse, Dali, Klimt and van Gogh to young readers and artists. Join the artistic festival that is alive in Dot’s imagination as she realizes that art is for everyone and we can create every day.
Children often need some help communicating their thoughts and ideas. One way to express themselves can be as simple as engaging in the arts. The beauty of art is that it truly is your own creation and as such can never be right or wrong: it simply is. Art is in each of us. So dance, sing, act, write, paint, sculpt or draw and take a tip from Dot: create something every day.
