Dot

Dot-CoverWritten by Randi Zuckerberg, Illustrated by Joe Berger

Dot knows a lot.
She knows how to tap…
to touch…
to tweet…
to search…
and to talk.

A very simple and easy-to-read text tells the story of a young 21st Century digital native enthusiastically finding her way through both the digital and physical worlds. The illustrations bring the rich multiple meanings of these simple words to life, and show the value not only in being digitally connected and curious, but also the importance of “rebooting” and connecting to the physical world through outdoor play, face-to-face interactions, etc. A great reminder of the importance of balance, exploration, and experience in life, this story should speak to pretty much everyone trying to negotiate our postmodern technological culture, whether 5 or 50 years old.
