Connect the Dots with the 1000 Dot-to-Dot Series

This was one of my faves from our Fall 2014 sales conference. These aren't your average connect-the-dots activity books. The 1000 Dot-to-Dot series by Thomas Pavitte (Thunder Bay Press) are filled with sophisticated and intricate puzzles that produce beautiful portraits of icons, animals, and cities. SO. MUCH. FUN. But don't take my word for it. See for yourself! This video is mind bending!
