A good bookmark doesn't just help you remember where you left off reading. It also doesn't just help you preserve pages from the viciousness of dog-earing or spines from the indignity of being placed open and face down.
A good bookmark–the perfect bookmark–tells you what to read next! That's why parents, librarians, teachers, as well as kids will love these read-alike bookmarks!
These printable bookmarks are based on our Read Alike Book List series. I turned the top sixteen most popular lists into bookmarks with five "read next" recommendations.
Each read alike bookmark boasts that the child is currently reading a well loved book and declares that they will read the following five books next. None of this wishy-washy, "can" read next stuff, right? These are books they will read next!
Five book recommendations is an inspiring number without being too overwhelming for more reluctant readers or slow readers. Ambitious kids will want to refer to our read alike book lists for ten or more read alike book recommendations.
