The Dot is another fabulous book by Peter H. Reynolds about a little girl who doesn't believe that she can draw/paint. Her teacher tells her to put a dot on the paper. Then to sign it. The next day the little girl goes to class and sees that the teacher has framed her dot. She decides that she can make an even better dot, etc., etc., etc. Adorable book!

Hidden in Plain View: A Secret Story of Quilts and the Underground Railroad by Jacqueline Tobin and Raymond Dobard. A picture book about how secret messages that only the runaway slaves understood where placed out to "dry" and when a slave went by they would be directed on their journey. Project ideas given in an el. ed. art class were to have students use the symbols to create a map of the classroom, school, etc.

Yes it is!!! I was just thinking about this same book while reading the other indications!
Your blog is great, it`s helping me a lot! I'm an art teacher in Brazil, teaching in a Canadian School back here. I was looking for art vocab to help me with the classes and I found much more than that!
Thank you so much!
