A wonderful opportunity to help kids open their eyes to the world of creativity and self-worth is celebrated around the world today on 15 September 2012. The idea for International Dot Day grew out of a powerful story by Peter H. Reynolds, called “The Dot,” published on 15 September 2003. The book is about a girl who doesn’t think she can draw. My writing friend Patricia Tilton has along with Peter Reynolds and others, challenge all kidlit bloggers to get behind this annual event, which has kids participating each year from around the world. Post a dot, any dot, be creative, make it your own, and past a dot of colour on your blog and celebrate. Visit http://fablevisionlearning.com/dotday/ to learn more. There also is a Facebook page devoted to International Dot Day with frequent updates.
Here is my dot:
