September 15 is "The Dot Day"

According to the Amazon book store, "The Dot" is about to have a sixth birthday. It's original publication date was September 15, 2003. So, using all the power invested in me by FableVision Learning and the 'Twinspiration', Peter and Paul, I am proclaiming September 15, "The Dot Day."

Here is how you can take part. On or around September 15, read the book "The Dot" to some kids or adult kids. Then have them paint dots. Huge dots, little dots, dots without painting dots, you know how it goes. Take pictures and/or video of the dot creation (or the final project) and email them to me (

Even if you aren’t in a classroom, never fear....You can do this with your family, a group of friends or paint your own happy, creative, joyful dot! Frame the final project and join in the fun!!!

Oh, be SURE to "Sign it"

My children love, The Dot and, Ish We own both of them, and I frequently read them to my kids. I love Peter Reynolds writing style, with wonderful accompanying illustrations. The message of how any child can be an artist is clear, without being preachy. Both books are a must-have for any Art classroom.
