The Perfect Dot by author and illustrator T.C. Bartlett tells the story of how the universe is formed. This magnificent picture starts with one perfect dot that flies around and doesn’t know what its purpose is. Eventually, that tiny dot decides to stop and spin. When it starts spinning, extraordinary things begin to happen, and soon there are millions of perfect dots. Soon, millions upon millions of planets were floating around each of the shining dots. Finally, the one perfect dot had found its purpose.
The Perfect Dot is a picture book telling the story of how the universe was formed. With one big bang, a single light became millions. This intellectual story is illustrated with detailed black and white pictures. It teaches the theory of the Big Bang in a way children can understand and comprehend. T.C. Bartlett brings the universe to life with his drawings showing the vast darkness and the beauty and delicate nature of the single dot. Once the universe is created, the illustrations of the planets and stars are detailed and eye-catching. I also liked how the text is not in organized, clean lines; instead, they are scattered around the pages and fit into the chaotic nature of the story.
I loved this simple and straightforward portrayal of this secular theory on how the universe was formed. It provides young children an explanation in words they can comprehend and uses clear and direct images. With some added humor, this fascinating story introduces the science of the universe’s creation to children in an age-appropriate manner.
The Perfect Dot is a creative picture book for preschool and kindergarten-age children on how the universe was created. Teachers will love having this book in their classroom library to explain this complex topic in a simple and entertaining way.
