International Dot Day

Being a school librarian is a wonderful job because I’m always surrounded by great books and stories–not to mention kids who are full of imagination!

Kids like Vashti, the main character in Peter Reynolds’ book The Dot:

In this book, Vashti is convinced she doesn’t have what it takes to be an artist….until a patient and creative teacher proves her wrong.

Art, Vashti learns, can come from something as tiny, as simple, as ordinary as a single dot.

The Dot is an amazing tale of imagination, self-esteem, and how a little encouragement can make a big difference.

And our friends at Avid Bookshop are hosting a fun storytime event at 1:00 on Saturday, September 15th to celebrate this inspiring tale for International Dot Day!

Visit this link for more information, and visit Avid on the 15th to read The Dot and have a little creative fun afterwards.

(Chase Street PreK and kindergarten students will also be reading The Dot right here in the library next week, and we might just make some dots of our own. :))
