"Just make a mark and see where it takes you."

With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark - and follow where it takes us. The words of Vashti's teacher are a gentle invitation to self-expression.  "Just make a mark and see where it takes you."  But Vashti can't draw--she's no artist.  Her teacher smiles.   Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can't leave a mark.  Out of frustration - to prove the point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper, leaving an unremarkable, angry dot! 

"There!"  she says.

That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti's journey of surprise and self-discovery.  In simpler terms, for over a decade this has been Kate's (our head book finder's)  favorite book.  Pair it with a set of "Dot Markers & Coloring Book".   It's all about leaving your mark!
