The book “The Dot” is important because it teaches you a valuable lesson. The author, Peter Reynolds, tells you to make a mark and see where it takes you. It inspires people that they can do anything and it’s ok to be different. Be Creative, be Artistic, be yourself. All you need is your imagination! After reading it, people know that they should not give up.
If you believe in yourself, you will do it. You may not get it as fast as you want, but you will succeed no matter what happens if you just believe. You may have to try and try again, but you can do it!
We can make a mark by making the world just a little bit better, and making everybody believe in themselves. You should be nice. We can make a mark by helping someone with their daily life. You might help someone you don’t know. Doing good in school can make a mark. Making a mark can take you a long way.
“The Dot” is known around the world, and people celebrate Dot Day for this wonderful book. This year over 1 million people celebrated Dot Day. I loved it because it gave me a talent for drawing because I just made a mark. In our class we Skyped, played checkers, Twister, painted and made a mural.
Today we learned what Skype was for the very first time, and used it to visit with other places that were celebrating Dot Day. Connecting with Skype was very fun because I learned that people all over the world have something in common. We got to play a game with the other classes in Utah and Colorado. It was cool to Skype with new friends from other places you never met in person.
We found out in Colorado there was lots of flash floods, and they just about had to close their school! They have 80 kids – that’s less than all the kids in Grade 4 in our school. Utah they had lots of kids – more than us. Utah had very nice weather. They also have a restaurant called Panda Express that has Chinese food. They both were very nice classes.
Just remember, be you – make your mark and see where it takes you.
We are Grade 4H at Millgrove School, and we love the book “The Dot”. If you meet someone who thinks they can’t do anything, just get them to read “The Dot”.
