Teacher's Tip: Make bookmarks something special! Something to aim for as an incentive or a treat at the end of a long week. Have each child color their own bookmark, or have a contest with different winning categories for different kinds of bookmarks!

Printable Bookmarks to color in Black and White:

These are great if you want to just print out the amount you need to make things easy, or you can also print out a set of black and white if you want to have your kids color them.

Printable Christmas bookmarks are an easy way to send home a little reminder to families to read throughout the holidays.

A few other deals for your readers that are happening this Black Friday:

I'm going to focus on Amazon deals for readers, because that's where I focus a lot of my own personal spending. (Busy mama alert! I get anything online I possibly can at this time of year, because it's all about consolidating, planning, and then enjoying the holiday if at all possible!)

Before you start your Amazon shopping though, make sure you are a Prime member. Prime Members get exclusive gifts, free shipping on tons of items, hundreds of free books and movies and the list goes on and on. You'll make your money back easily just in the holiday season! It's a must-have.

Aaand here's a link to the deals for Prime members that I mentioned before:

This one looks AWESOME for young readers! I am totally getting this as gifts to give this year. Check it out -

It's called the Prime Book Box from Amazon. It's a subscription that delivers hand-picked children’s books every 1, 2, or 3 months. 

It saves you up to 40% off List Price, and provides the best value on hardcover books sold by

Each box contains 2 hardcover books or 4 board books. You can either pick the books you want or be surprised. (You enter your reader's age and preferences.)

Each book box is only $20. That is FUN!  Totally going to try it.

Yes, and this one looks great too! Apparently, the deal is actually going to be ended on December 30th this year, so it would be a great thing to purchase before the year's end!

- Both Prime and non-Prime members can sign up for this 30 day free trial. (In the ad below).
- Customers can sign up for free trial on Android devices Fire devices.
- The trial includes unlimited access to more than 16,000 kid-friendly books, videos and apps as well as parental controls to help create a unique experience for each child.
- FreeTime Unlimited is available in the US, Germany, and UK.
- After the trial period, membership starts at only $2.99/month for an individual plan.

Not bad! I included this one because - 16,000 kid-friendly books is included. Instant HUGE library for your child at their home, or on vacation, or... wherever!

If your child doesn't have a device yet for reading books on the go, Black Friday/ Thanksgiving weekend is a GREAT time to look for a great deal and purchase one. Here's a deal on the Fire 7 Kid's Edition:

Audible is having a great BLACK FRIDAY deal for signing up to their program. A great way to do read-alouds when your voice can't take it another minute 🙂  Listen to books in the car or at bedtime!

This one is not a Black Friday or holiday deal per se, but worth a mention. Did you know that books go for a low price or many times free with this countdown program? Keep a shortcut of this on your desktop so you can see what books are being discounted that would be great for your readers:

Aaah okay. Not another sale, but since I'm talking Amazon, be SURE you have the free KINDLE APP on your device. You can download books without having a Kindle! Yes, you can purchase Kindle books this way, but for Prime members there are also a TON of free books. Enjoy!  (App is free.)

Of course there are a TON MORE deals at Amazon all week this week, so head over and check them out HERE!
