Megan Recommends “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds
One day when you are alone and having to go to ‘into battle’ yourself about homework (they are telling you it is too hard, their teacher didn’t teach them that, they can’t do it, they are too tired, no one else got it either or that you just don’t get it and why can’t you understand) take a few minutes to read “The Dot”. It is a quick read and inspires readers to think about their potential, to think outside the box and how important it is to have someone believe in you.
This is one of my favourite books and it never fails to remind me how important it is to demonstrate to children that you believe in them and in their potential even when they may not. I have read this book to adults, teens and my children and I firmly believe that everyone on the planet should read this book at least once! When you are experiencing the absence of a family member it sometimes feels as though you just can’t do certain things or jump over abstacles that you haven’t had to before. This book will make you believe that anything is possible when someone believes in you.
