From bestselling author and ABC News correspondent and anchor Linsey Davis, a picture book that celebrates both diversity and equality by showing kids that our genes are 99.9% identical.
Using child-friendly language, this playful picture book explains how genetics make each person unique and celebrates how we are more alike than different and are all part of the human race. In The Smallest Spot of a Dot: The Little Ways We’re Different, The Big Ways We’re the Same, Linsey Davis, bestselling children’s author, Emmy-winning correspondent, and host for ABC News, together with co-author Michael Tyler, encourages children to find their own unique dot with sweet, rhyming prose.
”Only .1% of our genes make us uniquely who we are. We are 99.9% identical, alike, the same—equal. This book is 100% about that truth.”
Combining whimsical rhymes and Lucy Fleming’s engaging art, The Smallest Spot of a Dot is:
- An inspiring story of connection, equality, and acceptance
- Multicultural, multiracial children’s picture book that recognizes our similarities and our uniqueness
- Great for classroom use as children explore genetics, DNA, and individuality
- The perfect read-aloud for kids ages 4–8
- A unique gift for birthdays and holidays, or a back-to-school treat
