Dotty (Simply Small) (Board Books)
Other Books in Series
Bold and bright, the Simply Small books are perfect for little ones with growing minds. Meet all these cute baby animals that find clever ways to solve their not-so-small problems.
Mommy and Dotty, a little fawn, are on their way through the field searching for strawberries. When Mommy leaps across a stream without getting wet, Dotty wants to, too. But Dotty is too small to leap as far as Mommy, and she keeps falling. Will she find a clever way to cross the stream? Of course she will--with a little help from her imagination and the animals around her.
About the Author
In 2003, a publisher saw my artwork at a show and asked if I wanted to do a children's book. For the next year I sent concept after concept and got back rejection after rejection--but my perseverance paid off. One Little Bug was published in 2004 and received a national award for book design. But the formula wasn't quite right yet. With help from writer/editor Kallie George, I built on the strengths of my first book to create Saffy and then the rest of the Simply Small Series. I believe perseverance is an empowering tool that can help children. I try to weave this theme into the Simply Small stories in a way that relates to the everyday challenges little ones face. Each story celebrates a special moment of learning and growing in the life of a child.
