Peter Author Visit The Dot BookBased on popular demand, the first book available for the Big Screen Books software suite was Peter H. Reynolds’ The Dot!

Beloved in classrooms around the world, The Dot tells the story of a girl who begins a journey of self-discovery after she is challenged by her teacher to “make her mark.” The interactive edition of The Dot makes the story larger than life, offering students new opportunities to explore the importance of being brave, nurturing creativity, and encouraging others.

"Big Screen Books shares stories that promote bravery, empathy, vision, patience, and creativity. When you remind students of these ‘gifts’ in their ‘journey backpacks,’ they can succeed not only in school, but in life."
— Peter H. Reynolds, Creator & New York Times Best-Selling Author/Illustrator
