There are, indeed, many dots to be found around us. These dots are printed in vivid colors, which I like.

Lots of Dots by Craig Frazier
Age: 2-5
Genre: Concepts

Lots of Dots is a wonderfully illustrated concept book linking ordinary objects in a child’s life to simple little dots. There is an easy rhyme to the book, and did I mention that the illustrations are absolutely wonderful? I’ve been reading this book with my soon-to-be 2-year-old and he is in love with this book. In fact, I checked this book out to read for my baby/toddler storytime at the library, but my son has been having so much fun with it at home, I haven’t had the heart to take it back to the library yet. There are big dots (a drum) and small dots (spots on a ladybug). Dots that are heavy (dumbbells) and dots that are light (bubbles). Etc. He has fun identifying the objects he recognizes (bubbles, eggs, etc) and learning new vocabulary at the same time. Although there isn’t much text in the book, everything is referred to as a dot. It is up to the reader to match the dot to the tangible object.

Whimsical dots, dots for licking, dots for snacking and even dots on shirts. In every color and size dots make up many of the things in the world around us. There are dots everywhere, if only you know where to look.

In the recent past there have been numerous books based on how we interact with common things in our environment such as shapes and colors. Dots have been a popular choice as of late, but it’s obvious why. Children love them! We’ve reviewed Dot by Patricia Intriago, now Lots of Dots by Craig Frazier and soon we’ll be posting our review for Press Here by Hervé Tullet. Each has been a huge hit with the kiddos, but my two year old daughter especially is attached to Lots of Dots. In one day in the recent past I can count at least a dozen times we read it in a single sitting, she loves it that much. The bright colors and situations are undoubtedly a huge draw for her, though she certainly appreciates interacting with pages like the “heavy” page.

Bright colors, situations and plenty of dots have children excited to discover just where the next dot will pop up in Lots of Dots by Craig Fraizer. With situations and places that involve the most common of places such as our shirts, a garden and in the stars children find that they only have to look around from where they sit to discover more dots. My daughter loves this picture book with a fervor I’ve rarely seen. Much of this has to do with a certain color, but the variety and interaction she finds within it’s pages are also something she looks forward to regularly. Lots of Dots is a creative story that children will not only enjoy reading, but will learn to incorporate into their lives and the world around them.

This is a great book for younger children learning their shapes and even colors. The book would be great to read in class and have the students point out the dots, circles and spheres that are around in the classroom. ( )

This is a cute, colorful book filled with round objects. It is light on text, with one line per page so it would be great for preschoolers. In rhyming couplets, it shows many ordinary things around us that are round. I think this would be great for a program with a craft using circles. With the plain white backgrounds and large colorful illustrations, the book is very eye-catching as well. I like this book a lot and can see me using it in a preschool program. ( )

In this exuberant book, acclaimed graphic designer Craig Frazier does more than simply showcase a vast variety of dots, he encourages young readers to look closely at the world around them. Through his energetic images, the ordinary becomes extraordinary. Buttons are dots. Wheels are dots. Ladybugs have dots. And so do the fried eggs on your plate. Lots of Dots is lots of fun!
