Thank you, North Gresham Elementary! We had a GREAT time reading together! And a very special THANK YOU to Karen Hirschmugl and Tiffany and Ethron Young for organizing the event, our biggest one yet.

Bjorn read to five different groups, from kindergarten to 3rd grade, throughout the day on Oct. 25th. The kids had lots of great questions about the books and everyone got a chance to draw their very own Dot!

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 Reads “Dot” at Portland Pre-School – Thursday 4 April 2013!

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.

Some Favorite Creative Dot Links… Enjoy!

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.
