Teach Through Story, Lead By Example
Inspired by the unity of our world as expressed in Carl Sagan’s speech about the Voyager 1 space probe photo of earth, Blue Dot Books will publish fun and fanciful stories that exemplify social responsibility and co-operation while portraying science and education not only as important, but enjoyable. The human race has been teaching values and knowledge through fictional stories for nearly as long as we have been able to communicate with one another. We feel that using fiction to provide examples of good social and environmental morals can improve the lives of our readers, and they in turn can then provide a good example to others.
"To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."
— Carl Sagan, speech at Cornell University, October 13, 1994
