How to use the printable bookmark book review?
Download the free bookmark at the bottom of the page.
For best results, print it on cardstock, but white paper or other colors work too. Cut along the dotted line, I prefer a paper cutter for time-saving, but scissors work just as well!
Fold the bookmark in half and glue it together with school glue.
Let the kids unleash their creativity and color in the books.
After finishing a book, it’s time to complete the book review, honing artistic, reading, and critical thinking skills.
The bookmark measures 2.5 x 8.5 inches when folded in half.
It’s the ideal size to mark your place in any book and serves as a wonderful reminder of the fantastic stories you’ve explored.
