Features an audio readalong! With a simple, witty story and freespirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark and follow where it takes us. Her teacher smiled. Just make a mark and see where it takes you. 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 cant draw shes no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. There! she says. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashtis journey of surprise and selfdiscovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynoldss delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.
