Un cuento precioso que habla sobre la importancia del refuerzo positivo en los niños para potencia la confianza en ellos mismos y ayudarles a desarrollar al máximo sus capacidades y su creatividad.
No tienes más que hacer una pequeña marca y observar adónde te lleva. Vashti dice que no sabe dibujar. Su profesora cree que sí. Porque sabe que todo el mundo tiene capacidad creativa dentro de sí. Y que donde hay un punto, hay un camino...

With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make 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.
