Today is International Dot Day, based on Peter H. Reynolds book, The Dot. It will be celebrated all week-long.
Children from 82 countries have signed up to participate in this week’s many activities. They will be using their imaginations and creativity to make their marks at home and in classrooms globally. Check out International Dot Day to see how it is being celebrated around the world using mediums such as Skype, Facebook and others to connect.
This year I decided to use a photo I took last year when my nephew was visiting and we spent a lovely day down at Hobbitville, the center of the earth. He is standing in the doorway of one of the Hobbit homes used in the making of the films.
Not only will children be making their dots, but celebrities have posted their dots on the International Dot Day website. And, many KidLit bloggers are posting their dots too. Use your imagination and come join in the fun.
We participated as well and just got our post out. LOVE this day! Because we want to see what everyone else is doing, we created a linky on our blog and invite you to add your post! I love the picture of your nephew. Have a great day!

We got organized with our linky and should be even more organized by the end of the day – this is what happens when we get ideas popping in our heads. We added your post to our Dot Day Linky. Now Cool Mom is googling “Hobbitville.” 🙂
