Experience the unique storytelling of the shortlisted book for the Teach Primary Book Awards 2021. "Spots and Dots" offers a double delight, as it contains two stories in one! Flip the book upside down and immerse yourself in the perspective of either the Spots or the Dots, until their paths intersect at the middle of the book.
On one side of the hill, the Spots reside, while the Dots occupy the other side. Both communities are filled with fear and suspicion towards one another, but are they truly as different as they believe? It all changes when a young Spot and a young Dot unexpectedly meet at the hill's summit. Together, they are about to embark on a journey of discovery.
Through the pages of this captivating picture book, readers will be invited to find the similarities in others, challenge their preconceived notions, and embrace the beauty of diversity. Fear, as they will come to realize, often stems from ignorance. With stunning artwork by the award-winning illustrator Marion Deuchars, "Spots and Dots" is a visual treat that celebrates the power of understanding and acceptance.
Delve into this extraordinary tale, where worlds collide and bridges are built. It's a story that encourages readers of all ages to look beyond surface differences, recognise shared experiences, and celebrate the richness of our diverse world.
