International Dot Day!

 Celebrate 10 years of International Dot Day on 15th-ish September!

It all started TEN years ago, when a teacher and his students in Iowa celebrated the themes of creativity and courage in Peter H. Reynolds’s The Dot. Now, every 15-ish September, more than 10 million teachers, librarians, and children in 170 countries participate in International Dot Day, making their mark by getting busy with writing, drawing, painting, or other creative outlets and sharing their Dot Day inspiration with others.

Join in the global celebrations on 15-ish September by hosting a reading of The Dot, throwing a creative dot-making event, or planning a weeklong series of activities — the possibilities are endless! To get started, download the free International Dot Day pack from Walker Books packed with simple ideas to help you celebrate creativity in your classroom or library, and you can also download a free International Dot Day event poster.

We can’t wait to hear about your International Dot Day event in your classroom or library. Keep us updated by sharing any news, photos and art with us via Twitter @uksla @WalkerBooksUK #DotDay, #Makeyourmark.
