A simple story and free-spirited illustrations entice even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark -- and follow where it takes us. BrailleInk.'s board book version of this popular, award-winning title reproduces the original print and illustration at the top of the page. Contracted braille is added at the bottom of the page, with the corresponding print letters printed again directly above the braille cells. Since it is easy for anyone to tell what the braille says, this book is ideal both for teaching/learning braille and for teaching sighted children about braille. There is also a printed glossary that shows the alphabet, numbers, punctuation, and contractions that are used in this book.

Kindergarten-Grade 3–This is a dual-text version of a story of a little girl who emphatically states that she can't draw. Her wise teacher tells her to Just make a mark and see where it takes you. After Vashi jabs a dot on her paper, the teacher urges her to then sign it. The next day Vashi arrives at school to find that it has been framed and hung. She is encouraged to create more watercolor dot paintings, and they are subsequently displayed in an art show. When a boy admires her work, she, in turn, encourages his efforts. The braille translation is accurate but the weight of the heavy board-book pages has caused the raised dots to be mashed down in places. This lack of uniformity makes it more difficult for braille readers to decipher. The book includes a glossary with an explanation of the contractions that appear in bold text in the book. The glossary itself isn't brailled, but perhaps it's not necessary, since the book is for more advanced readers. Unfortunately, only the text is translated into braille, so the impact of Reynolds's colorful, free-spirited watercolor illustrations, particularly Vashi's contributions to the art show, are going to be lost on nonsighted readers. However, the idea of encouraging the creative spirit in all children is still evident.–Sharon Rawlins, NJ Library for the Blind and Handicapped, Trenton
