Storytime: Gary Earl Ross reads Dots

Gary took a moment to explain the history behind his book, Dots,

“Dots is a book commissioned by the Erie County Fair Housing Partnership to explain the concept of fair housing to children. They reached out to me for a recommendation of a children’s author. The woman I asked had just lost her husband and turned down the offer. Then I had an idea and wrote the book myself. The illustrator was a student in my UB summer course. Anwar Morse now works as an artist in NYC.  Alligator Pie by Dennis Lee was a book my children loved. It had lots of tongue twister poems. The poem I read was everyone’s favorite. “
