    1 thought on “Dot.

    1. I like the clever turn around in this book using the same verbs for high-tech and no-tech activities. A good title for Screen Free Week.Use with Doug Unplugged or hello! hello!.

    2. This was a very cute hard backed book about Dot, who loves to surf the Internet, tweet and share things online. She soon realises she can have just as much fun outside! I think my five month old son is a bit too young to appreciate the message of the book, but I'm sure older children will understand!

    3. Dot loves her electronic devices, but a trip outside to play reminds Dot that she enjoys other activities, too. I loved the parallels between the verbs describing Dot's online and offline activities like "tapping" and "tweeting".

    4. It seems this book has been reviewed by a lot of adults who haven't actually read it to children. There are a lot of "this book is a good reminder for children and adults" or "kids today . . ." This review is for someone who is looking to read this book to their child, not just as a novelty. The best thing about this book are the illustrations. They are lovely and whimsical.The second best thing about this book is the intention behind it. The message Ms. Zuckerberg wants to share is a good one.T [...]

    5. Rating: ★★★½ (4 stars). Review posted on granitemedia: granitemedia/2014/01/dot/ Dot knows a lot.She knows how to tap…to touch…to tweet…to search…and to talk.A very simple and easy-to-read text tells the story of a young 21st Century digital native enthusiastically finding her way through both the digital and physical worlds. The illustrations bring the rich multiple meanings of these simple words to life, and show the value not only in being digitally connected and curious, but a [...]

    6. Perfect! What a perfect way to capture today's child, and to also encourage playing the way we did when we were small. I would read this book over and over to any technologically savvy child just to remind them of the 'other' ways of doing things. Perfect illustrations and text form a thoroughly modern story.

    7. I had the opportunity to get my hands on an Art Not Final Advanced copy of Dot. and then later a real deal hardcover by social media expert Randi Zuckerberg and I am intrigued and overall delighted. AT first I was hesitant reading it as we do not really allow our littles into technology - no matter how cute or easily they pick it up. However, this book is adorably cute and the message is sound. Yes, learn and play with the tech, but then go unplug! Very modern and appropriate for this generation [...]

    8. Dot. by Randi Zuckerbert, illustrated by Joe Berger - like so many books that remind children that there’s more to life away from the screen, Dot does have this message. I thought it was special in an additional way, use of text and repetition in a really cute way. I know my students will enjoy talking about context and interpretation of words and additionally will compare this with numerous other beautiful books!

    9. Perfection! Dot knows how to use electronic devices. Dot knows how to "reboot" by going outside. Dot is well-rounded. Wonderful! The same verbs are used when discussing Dot's use of electronic devices as the verbs used when describing Dot being in nature. I love this PARTICULARLY in light of our summer reading overall health theme, ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, READ!

    10. Fun juxtaposition of Dot learning to touch, swipe, tap, tweet in relation to technology and then kids playing outside, choosing to touch, swipe, tap, tweet, etc. Good read aloud. Good springboard for screens discussion.

    11. A great little story about how one can be connected to the Net but still have fun going outside. Verbs are interchanged with each activity. This is a great book to make connections for younger students.

    12. I just don't get it. I mean, I guess it's about not letting your tech overrun your life? But other than the illustrations (which are lovely) I didn't see much of a point of this book. However, I also don't see why someone would let a toddler play with their tablet, so.

    13. Absolutely fabulous picture book on the balance between technology and real world experiences. Nicely done. I think most little ones out there are like DOT and need to be told to Reboot and Recharge outside.

    14. There's a lot of kids and adults who can learn much from Dot's self-discovery. A great message wonderfully delivered in an appealing fable.

    15. Fun contrast between technology verbs and the use of the same verbs but without technology.

    16. simple vocabulary but a cute story with wordplay and bright illustrations that translate well to read aloud crowds. *might* be good for talking theme.

    17. A fun fable about unplugging and getting connected to the real world. (no Jackass to complicate things this time)

She's a spunky little girl obsessed with electronic devices. Dot knows a lot.

    19. What a great idea! A book about a tech-savvy kid who still appreciates what goes on when she isn't using her many varied tech tools, but doesn't have to spurn the goodness of those tech devices to show her appreciation of the non-tech world. That's the message that books about over-saturation of technology should spread. Too often, books about tech and kids make tech seem like an all-consuming evil that makes kids bad citizens. This shows that there is a right amount of involvement in tech that [...]

    20. I think the idea of the book and the message it tries to transmit is very nice! I was trying to see if children will actually enjoy it and I am not very sure. I will have to try it with actual kids and see what their reactions would be. I do think it is nice how the books combines technology with the outside as entertainment for kids. The reality is there are many kids who are left with tablets as babysitters and these kids may get the message.

    21. I loved this story! It shows the type of world that children today are so fluent in, and connects it to a wonderful world of childhood fun outside of all of the electronic experiences. It made me remember so many amazing things about how I played as a child. I hope it is a story that will encourage children to seek fun outdoors, but the lure of electronics is so great. It would make a wonderful family time story.

    22. Dot knows a great deal about technology and its various tools. She is an expert at searching, surfing, and swiping. After a gentle reminder (push) from her mom, to pause and get outside, Dot soon remembers how her expertise of searching, surfing, and swiping extend far beyond the tech world.

    23. A great parallel for our young digital nativesyou can tap, tweet, share on a device and out in the world.

    24. So surprised I hadn't heard of this book! Empowering message for tech savvy kids and adults, balance. Clever illustrations to illustrate tech behaviors outside in nature.

    25. Dot is a little girl who is very good with technology. She can tap, touch, tag, tweet and swipe. She spends a lot of time inside with all of her technology. She also loves to talk a lot. One day, Dot is all talked out and her mom tells her to go outside and play. She needs to “reboot, recharge, restart!” Outside, Dot has fun with her friends, she taps (dances), touches (sunflowers) and plays “tag”. She is outside from sun up to sun down and has a great day. And she still likes to talk to [...]

    26. "Dot" by Randi Zukerberg draws me in because of the cover. I think it is an unspoken rule that children's pictures books must be judged by the cover. The red corners, red of Dot's dress, and yellow ground are a have enough of a 1970ish nostalgia to immediately catch my attention. I read somewhere recently older out of print children's books are experiencing a huge comeback in the current market. They are purchased by parents and grandparents who want to share the book love with their children. A [...]

    27. Dot knows her way around an iPad, a laptop, a cell phone. She's a kid the media might call "a digital native," home with any and all devices. But one day she's tapped out, fried. So her mom tells her that it's time to go outside and reboot, recharge.I love the twist that happens as Dot spends time outside, realizing that she loves tapping, tagging and sharing in a different way. Some might say that this book is heavy-handed, but I found the spare text and bright, energetic cartoon illustrations [...]
