Bookmarks that Spark Wonder
Books invite us to see the world from another point of view, and this is especially true if we spend time wondering about the characters – how they acted and why. This bookmark project will remind you to use every book as an opportunity to wonder deeply – across diversity and difference.
Materials: Printable bookmark, crayons or colored pencils, scissors, clear packing tape, hole punch, yarn or ribbon
How To: Print out and decorate as many bookmarks as you like. Cut around the outside of the book marks (leaving the front and back adjoined). Fold in half (so the front and back face outward). Seal with packing tape or laminate. Use a hole punch where indicated and add yarn or ribbon. Save a few for yourself. Hide the others in library books you love or in Little Free Libraries. Hand them out for Halloween. Give them to teachers or neighbors or mail them to your favorite book lovers.
