- Customer reviews:
--Publishers Weekly (starred review) With art that seems perfectly suited to the mood and the message of the text, Reynolds inspires with a gentle and generous mantra: 'Just make a mark.'
--School Library Journal (starred review) Simplicity itself, like the dot in the title, this small book carries a big message.
--Booklist (starred review) A fable about the creative spirit in every child.
--Nick Jr. Family Magazine Best Books of the Year This small gem of a book tells the story of Vashti. . . . It's the beginning of a love affair with dots in many different colors, sizes and patterns -- and a marvelous lesson about what art is.
--Washington Post Readers can wonder about unsigned works that lie before us all.
--Chicago Tribune In other hands this story about the power of the creative spirit could be preachy and overdone, but Reynolds keeps the voice fresh and the message subtle.
--Book Links A wise and delightful tale for all ages.
--Yellow Brick Road Reynolds' pictures in this parable . . . emphasize that all art, from the most impressive masterpiece to a child's simple scrawl begins the same way and by definition there is no right or wrong way to express oneself -- an important lesson for anyone who is learning something new.
--Syndicated Column - Lynne Burke This is a charming fable about faith and art. Reynolds's drawings have just the right lightness and whimsy to keep it all afloat in a cartoony watercolor-washed world.

"The Dot is about getting started — getting unstuck. It is also about creative teaching, exploring an idea in many ways, and sharing our gifts with others."

"Ish . . . encourages readers to see the world anew."
—School Library Journal, starred review
"Besides encouraging children to paint what they actually see rather than repeating the visual conventions they've learned, this original offering frames an apparent problem as a challenge with a simple solution. Rounding out the picture book series that began with THE DOT (2003), this fresh, whimsical picture book encourages the artist and the creative thinker in every child."
—Booklist (starred review)
"Perfectly poised for graduates of all stripes."
"Reynolds's fable emphasizes that having faith (and patience) can pay off big."
