I am a Celebri-Dot!! (Please note the double exclamation marks — I am so honored and excited.)
Allow me to direct you to award-winning children’s author and illustrator Peter Reynolds‘ amazing idea to connect kids around the world with the authors and illustrators who write and draw the books they read. It’s an online movement full of humor and grace revolving around International Dot Day (September 15th), and based upon Reynolds’ best-selling book, The Dot.
Some of my absolute favorite children’s authors and illustrators are on the Celebri-Dot list — I cannot say again how honored I am to be among them. I was invited to submit a Dot for my book, Sometimes the Moon. My Dot is now up! I’m officially a Celebri-Dot!
(Happy dance time! Happy Dot dance time!)
The point of the Celebri-Dots movement is to encourage our youngest authors and illustrators to “Make Their Mark.” To start with something, anything — even a tiny dot — and go from there. I hope you’ll visit the Celebri-Dots site and enjoy all the Dots submitted by authors, illustrators and celebrities (and me!). If you are a teacher, check out the FableVision site founded by Reynolds to help bring creativity to the classroom.
I’ll leave you with my Dot. And a big THANK YOU for your encouragement and support!
