September 15th marks International Dot Day. How are you celebrating? This wondrous campaign encourages creativity and self discovery and is based on the picture book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.
For a limited time only the eBook version is available for $1.99.
In the story, a young girl is encouraged by her teacher and is eventually inspired to do more than she ever imagined. It has a uplifting message and an official song that I cannot get out of my head…make, make, make a mark…
Join in the celebration by signing up on International Dot Day’s website. You’ll find plenty of inspiration whether you are a teacher, student, author, or illustrator on their site. There’s a Dot Gallery full of photos to get ideas, videos and even a Celebri-dot blog. Here is my 2015 DOT where we think that every dot matters.
My local children’s library is participating this year. I cannot wait to see this banner filled with creative dots and I’ll try to take an after the event picture.
So… in honor of International Dot Day and especially to those who think they cannot draw: “Just make a mark and see where it takes you.” YOU can do it!
