One thing that has really helped keep track of her reading time is her Mark-My-Time digital bookmark. These brightly colored bookmarks are made from sturdy plastic, so they don't get torn up like the paper bookmarks we use. In addition, the Mark-My-Time digital bookmark has a timer that allows my daughter - or any of the 20 million kids who keep track of their daily reading - to know just how many minutes she's spent with her books.
The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark comes in yellow, red, fuchsia, neon green, blue and purple. The digital clock at the top is powered by a replaceable watch battery. Kids and their parents can choose to set a countdown timer with alarm to mark the end of required reading time. Or, there is a cumulative timer to track total time read throughout the day.
The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark has received the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, as well as the Mr. Dad Seal of Approval. It has also been named Creative Child Kids’ Product of the Year and has won The Family Review Center gold award and the Fat Brain Toy Award in the category of teaching toys and tools.
The bookmark would make a great stocking stuffer for children five years and older, or a nice reward to motivate reading at home or school. The Mark-My-Time digital bookmark sells at bookstores and online for about $8.95.
