绘本作者是彼得·雷诺兹(Peter H.Reynolds,1961年出生于加拿大多伦多,著名童书作家、插画家。毕业于麻省理工学院艺术院,拥有自己的艺术工作室。雷诺兹的绘本作品风格独特、富有创意。代表作《点》曾荣获克里斯托弗大奖,荣登《纽约时报》畅销书榜,囊括美国十项年度童书大奖,同名电影荣获芝加哥国际儿童电影节大奖并入围奥斯卡最佳动画短片奖。


The Dot /《点》是我看过一遍后记忆犹新感觉很特别的绘本。书的名字《The Dot》耐人寻味,翻译为中文《点》有一语双关的意思,只要给孩子一点点鼓励,TA就能有信心做得更好,甚至把自己的潜能发挥出来成为最好的自己。正如《爱心树世界杰出绘本选:点》编辑推荐所说:给一“点”鼓励,就能激发孩子无限的可能! 这是激发孩子无限潜能的关键点,更是开启孩子无限未来的关键点。

绘本中瓦士缇的老师一个小小的举措和几句简单但智慧的循循善诱的话:“那就随便画一笔,看看能画出什么。”“Ah! A polar bear in a snow storm.”“Just make a mark and see it where it takes you.”, “Now sign it.”,可以改变孩子的一生,作为家长的我们,也是如此。

 

去年12月我在Joy English Show网络原版英文绘本赏析活动中组织家长和小朋友一起朗读过这个绘本,记得珠海Poppy小朋友在现场活动中大胆说出自己对这个绘本的感受:“绘本中的老师尊重了孩子的思想”,Poppy妈妈当时都很惊讶poppy能说出这么有深度的读后感,其实我们每个家长都应该相信自己孩子,我想poppy本身就是喜欢阅读的孩子,尤其中文阅读能力很强,就算对这本适合5-9岁孩子经典原版英文绘本,只要欣赏这些美丽的绘本插图,孩子就能明白并喜欢书中的人物和故事。(参考:http://bulo.hujiang.com/diary/217572/12月16日轻松英语秀/Joy English Show)


英文绘本原文:

The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds (Highly recommended. (Ages 5 to 9))

Art class was over, but Vashti sat glued to her chair. Her paper was empty.

Vashti’s teacher leaned over blank paper“Ah! A polar bear in a snow storm,” she said.

“Very funny!” said Vashti. “I just can’t draw!”

Her teacher smiled. “Just make a mark and see it where it takes you.

Vashti grabbed a marker and gave the paper a good, strong jab. “There!”

Her teacher picked up the paper and studied it carefully. “Hmmmm.”

She pushed the paper towards Vashti and quietly said, “Now sign it.”

Vashti thought for a moment. “Well, maybe I can’t draw, but I CAN sign my name.”

The next week, when Vashti walked into her art class, she was surprised to see what was hanging above her teacher’s desk.

It was the little dot she had drawn- HER DOT! All framed in swirly gold! “Hmmph! “哼I can make a better dot than THAT!”

She opened her never-before-used set of watercolours and set to work.

A red dot.  A purple dot. A yellow dot. A blue dot.

Vashti painted and painted. The blue mixed with the yellow. She discovered that she could make a GREEN dot.

Vashti kept experimenting. Lots of little dots in many colours.

“If I can make little dots, I can make BIG dots, too.” Vashti splashed her colours with a bigger brush on bigger paper to make bigger dots.

Vashti even made a dot by NOT painting a dot.

At the school art show a few weeks later, Vashti’s many dots made quite a splash. Vashti noticed a little boy gazing up at her.

“ You're a really great artist. I wish I could draw.” he said.

“ I bet you can,” said Vashti.

“Me? No, not me. I can’t draw a straight line with a ruler.”

Vashti smiled. She handed the boy a blank sheet of paper. “ Show me.”

The boy’s pencil shook as he drew his line.

Vashti stared at the boy’s squiggle. And then she said…

“ Sign it.”

分享我看到网上很多家长阅读后的评价和感言:


1.《点》这个故事很早就打动了我,那时女儿还没有出生。
当时我就想,等我的孩子以后上了幼儿园,一定要买一本《点》送给老师,
触动老师们能以鼓励的态度对待孩子,学校是教孩子学会了什么,绝不是考孩子不会什么,
孩子像白纸一样,你鼓励他画下一个点,他就可能创下无数个点,无数个面,无数个多彩多姿的未来。今年孩子上幼儿园了,带上一本《点》,送给了她的老师,
希望她们都能有启发,鼓励每个孩子画下自信的点~~~~~~~

 

2.很有启蒙意义的一个小故事。推荐所有的老师,家长和孩子都看一看!
从老师的身上,我们可以看到老师对孩子的欣赏和信任,那就随便画一笔”“请签名她的赏识对孩子来说是非常重要的激励。
从孩子的身上,我们可以看到她(他)的执着,我还可以画得更好的信念,坚持不懈,勇于创造,就会成功!当她的作品成功展览的时候,就对那个崇拜她的孩子说:那就随便画一笔以及请签名,让我们看到这种良性的传承而心感安慰和感动。
