Features an audio read-along! With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark - and follow where it takes us. Her teacher smiled. "Just make a mark and see where it takes you." Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can't draw - she's no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. "There!" she says. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti's journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds's delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.

Investigating the complex relationship between perfectionism and academic achievement, advanced students and researchers are introduced to different conceptualizations and measures of perfectionism in the opening chapter. Subsequent chapters of this book then provide an in-depth exploration of factors known to influence perfectionism such as parenting, attachment, and personality, as well as academic outcomes such as motivation, stress, burnout, anxiety, and procrastination. The book highlights avenues for future research to extend the exploration of perfectionism and academic achievement. The authors propose a theoretical model for future work on perfectionism and academic achievement and discuss additional areas that, while less well researched, deserve attention for their potential influence on how perfectionism may impact academic achievement.
