A father and daughter reading together

Visit this space to find out the latest happenings at Muhlenberg County Public Libraries!

This week’s featured book at Books & Cream is The Dot.

the dot“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.”

Come read The Dot with your child anytime between 11am-2pm at Thistle Cottage!
