“I just CAN’T draw.
” Children will sympathize immediately with Vashti’s first, angry little dot and then cheer her subsequent discovery that even a dot can be art when it springs from inspiration. Before long, Vashti has found many ways to create many dots—“Vashti even made a dot by NOT painting a dot.
This empowering tale emphasizes the artistic process, gently reminding the creative spirit in all of us that there is no wrong way to create.
