Celebrate International Dot Day on 15-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!
Walker Books will provide 250 free International Dot Day packs with simple ideas to help you celebrate creativity in your classroom or library.
The pack includes:
- 2 x A2 International Dot Day posters for display
- 1 x International Dot Day photocopiable event poster
- 1 x photocopiable International Dot Day Classroom Guide, including a message from Peter H. Reynolds

You can order these packs until 17 August but they may sell out before this date.
This is strictly one pack per order. If you are ordering packs for more than one library you can either order these individually or email Kimberley (email address below). Please make sure that you include the name of the school or library where you will be using the packs in the address.
The packs will be with you in early September to give you enough time to plan and promote your Dot Day event around the 15th-ish of September.
