Lee Owen Stone Preschool Students
Just a special “Thank You!” to the staff, parents, and students at the Lee Owen Stone Pre-School in Portland, Oregon for inviting me to read to such wonderfully inquisitive children.
The kids especially like the picture of the kitty, cow, and octopus. And of course, finding Nibbles the Bunny is always super fun!
Keep reading with your kids and encouraging their imaginative spirit!
Bjorn Ansbro is stoked to be donating books and reading This is Dot and Dot Wonders to the students at the Lee Owen Stone Pre-School in Portland, Oregon on Thursday, April 4th 2013.
The Dot books are designed to encourage children to express their own thoughts and feelings about the story. It’s always fascinating to see what the kids imagine beyond the imagery on the pages.
Squiggly Line Media urges parents to read to their children daily and volunteer time at local schools to spread the joy of reading.
We just wanted to take a moment to express our deep concern and sympathy for the families, students, and faculty of Sandy Hook Elementary. We are very sorry for your loss.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
The Dot and the Line, a romance in lower mathematics – Story by Norton Juster. Directed and Produced by Chuck Jones. Yet another reason to love Chuck Jones!
Dot. The world’s smallest stop-motion animation character. Simply awesome.
“The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds – Wonderful book about a child’s creative spark.
This is dot (it’s OK, she’s Australian, she didn’t know…) – Beautifully illustrated cards and prints.
DOT = Do One Thing to help the environment, created by the Alliance for Climate Education.
DOT Language - Ovals and arrows and relationships between objects… Admittedly not for everyone.
Got a Dot link you’d like to share? Let us know. And yes, even your favorite Department of Transportation is welcome. But you have to tell us why you love the link.
Squiggly Line Media will provide signed Dot books and an in-class reading event for a fundraising auction in early 2013 on behalf of the Lee Owen Stone Pre-School in Portland, Oregon. More details to come!
And please contact us to connect with auction organizers for ways you can contribute!
They really do. In a matter of minutes, and with Amazon’s free Kindle Previewer software, we had both This is Dot and Dot Wonders converted into Kindle’s .mobi format and submitted to the Amazon store. Just like that!
Dot Wonders for Kindle
This is Dot for Kindle
Now, in addition to our iBooks versions, you can get a samples, lend to friends, and share Dot with children on the go with your Kindle! For best results, use your Kindle Fire to see Dot in full color.
Enjoy! And as always, keep sharing your experiences, travels, and adventures with Dot.
With some serious reservations and logistical limitations, Dot is back in iBooks! Both books are now correctly loaded with full download versions and audio tracks that play via iBook’s Read Aloud feature (not those supremely flawed speaker icons).
However, the descriptions have some typos which Apple seems to be taking their time to correct. One of the many drawbacks of working through Lightning Source for ebook distribution is the lack of direct control over distributor accounts. For example, we can’t log in to iBooks and correct the metadata descriptions for the books. So, we’re at their mercy.
But you can now enjoy a read-along experience with Dot on any Apple device with more formats for other ebook readers on the way! Thanks for hanging in there with us!
Just go to:
