Happy International Dot Day!

dot_day_2012_v01Today is the 12th anniversary of Peter H. Reynold’s international bestselling book, The Dot, about a girl who doesn’t think she can draw.

It is also the seventh annual celebration of International Dot Day. Over 3,910,952 students from 115 countries will be participating. It will be a fun week for children worldwide to read The Dot in 12 different languages and braille, sing the Dot Song, use their imagination to make their unique and creative dots, and share their masterpieces. Many classrooms have signed up to SKYPE  and connect with each other in the U.S. and around the world.

Authors have created Celebri-Dots. KidLit bloggers are making their marks today and all week. Please remember to post your dots on your websites, Facebook and Twitter using @DotClubConnect, #dotday and #makeyourmark.

I have included a few of the dots I’ve created over the years.

Remember to have fun today and this week of celebration of imagination, creativity connecting with our global friends. I’m still hoping for many more KidLit bloggers sharing their dots.

About Patricia Tiltonhttps://childrensbooksheal.wordpress.comI want "Children's Books Heal" to be a resource for parents, grandparents, teachers and school counselors. My goal is to share books on a wide range of topics that have a healing impact on children who are facing challenges in their lives. If you are looking for good books on grief, autism, visual and hearing impairments, special needs, diversity, bullying, military families and social justice issues, you've come to the right place. I also share books that encourage art, imagination and creativity. I am always searching for those special gems to share with you. If you have a suggestion, please let me know.

    • Thank you. Happy Dot Day! I studied photography when I was a journalist. I usually carried a camera with me when I worked as a budding reporter and was quite good. Even developed my black and white photos in the dark room. Those were the days. Now, I’m giving away my age. 🙂
