How to use the printable bookmark?

Using the printable bookmark book review is a piece of cake! First, grab the free bookmark download at the bottom of the page – easy peasy!

Now, for the best results, print it on cardstock, but don’t worry if you only have white paper or any other cool colors lying around; they’ll work just as great! Next, get your scissors or, if you want to be super efficient, a paper cutter to cut along the dotted line.

Once you’ve got your bookmark all set, fold it in half, and use some school glue to stick it together. Voilà! You’ve got your very own bookmark, ready to be decorated with vibrant colors by the kids.

Here comes the fun part! Let those creative minds run wild as they color in the books and make the bookmark their own.

Now, when they finish reading a book, it’s time for the real adventure – completing the book review! Not only will this activity spark their artistic flair, but it’ll also boost their reading and critical thinking skills.

Oh, by the way, did you know that the bookmark measures a neat 2.5 x 8.5 inches when folded in half? It’s the perfect size to mark their place in any book they read. Plus, it’s a fantastic keepsake of all the amazing stories they’ve explored on their reading journey!
