Vashti doesn't think she is good at art. Her art teacher gives her advice, "Just make a mark and see where it takes you." This leads Vashti to her own collection of art dots. Everyone is amazed at the beautiful art that Vashti has created.
Ramon loves to draw. But one day his brother, Leon, makes fun of him. Ramon no longer loves to draw and destroys his work. But his little sister, Marisol, changes his mind when she hangs all of his work and tells him that she likes them. Ramon learns to love his work and drawing again.
Both of these books are very simple, but really great. Each book shows a child that learns to accept themselves for the work that they do. I love the simpleness of them both. Perfect little reads.
I borrowed these from the public library
