About this deal

In November of 2013, Randi released her first books with HarperCollins, an adult non-fiction book also titled Dot Complicated, which addresses the multifaceted complications of our socially transparent world, and a children’s picture book, titled Dot. It is my opinion reading the overall negative reviews, that the idea of technology with a child has hit a nerve and I'm not sure those reviewers got even past the first half of the book. But the overall message of the book is not "oh look what this young child can do" it's the fact that even with technology getting outside, playing classic games, and with friends is even more important and fun is to be found.

to my son I wondered how in the world this book got published (for reasons I will explain in a moment).Frustrated at her inability to get anything onto her paper in art class, Vashti informs her teacher that she simply can't draw, only to be met with kind but firm encouragement to "make her mark. What a lovely story and such a wise tale to tell a child; trying hard it the most important thing, not whether we are the best t something. I'm not sure I liked this one quite as much as "Ish" but that could just be because I read "Ish" first and was so refreshed by the story encouraging a child's artistic freedom and creativity. Mom has her “recharge” by going outside and getting fresh air, playing, and enjoying the company of friends.

The Dot is a self-confidence story of a little girl Veshti who is upset and angry that she cannot draw anything.I liked Ish better, but they make the same basic point that you have to be yourself and follow your own path to creativity.

Given that many children have negative experiences that discourage them from expressing themselves creatively, maybe they’ll at least come across this book and get inspired again.In my experience with this book I do not find it to be Dot abandoned and left alone with only technology for entertainment. Soy una fiel creyente que los libros para niños no tienen que enseñar nada pero debe ser bueno, y este libro cumple con mostrar cosas importantes y es excelente. Each little artist enjoyed the experience from the girl who drew a two-dimensional drawing of house with flower garden and, yes, the white picket fence, to the boy who just let red cover the whole paper and a little of the floor.
