International Dot Day!

In celebration of International Dot Day (September 15th-ish) I am making a special second blog post today! I learned about Dot Day through Patricia Tilton’s awesome blog “Children’s Books Heal.” Dot Day is celebrated around the world. The goal of Dot Day is to help kids (and grown-ups) express themselves and be creative. The day is based on Peter H. Reynolds great picture book “The Dot.”

For a summary and review of “The Dot” please visit Ms. Tilton’s website HERE.  To learn more about International Dot Day, please visit the official website HERE! My sister and I decided to make our own dots. Please visit Josie’s blog to see her dot by clicking HERE.

This is the dot I made!
