Do you have a little reader in your home? Are you looking for an easy way to motivate and encourage them to keep reading? If so, then this blog post is just for you!
We are excited to introduce our new FREE printable bookmarks, perfect for children of all ages. These bookmarks feature fun and creative designs, making them the perfect addition to any child’s library of books.
How Bookmarks Can Encourage Kids to Read More
Having a bookmark may seem small and insignificant, but it plays a big role in encouraging kids to read more.
Having a designated bookmark can make reading feel more special and personalized. Instead of using a scrap of paper or folding down pages, having a bookmark gives young readers a tangible item that they can use to mark their progress and keep their place.
Bookmarks are a physical reminder of their reading progress and can instill a sense of accomplishment and pride for finishing a book or even just a chapter.
This can help motivate children to read more often and for longer periods of time as they begin to associate reading with positive feelings of achievement. I know this is true of my children as they read through their favorite chapter books.

Not only will these bookmarks keep your kids engaged in their books, but they’ll also add a little bit of personality to their reading routine as they use their fun bookmark to hold their place in their latest read.
