With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to m...ake 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 can?t draw - she?s 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 Vashti?s journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds?s delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us. Book Details: Format: Hardcover Publication Date: 9/15/2003 Pages: 32 Reading Level: Age 5 and Up Author: Peter H.

From Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Ted Kooser and rising talent Jon Klassen comes a poignant tale of loss, change, and natures quiet... triumph. When the house was new, not a single tree remained on its perfect lawn to give shade from the sun. The children in the house trailed the scent of wild trees to neighboring lots, where thick bushes offered up secret places to play. When the children grew up and moved away, their father, alone in the house, continued his battle against blowing seeds, plucking out sprouting trees. Until one day the father, too, moved away, and as the empty house began its decline, the trees began their approach. At once wistful and exhilarating, this lovely, lyrical story evokes the inexorable passage of time ? and the awe-inspiring power of nature to lift us up.
