Dinosaur Coloring Bookmarks
Dinosaur-themed bookmark coloring pages are a prehistoric delight for young adventurers. I mean, what kid doesn’t go through a dinosaur phase at some stage? Kids can use crayons and markers to create texture as they personalise each bookmark. The lowercase letters are also a fun way to reinforce letter sounds.

The Quirky Characters
I love that reading encourages kids to use their imaginations. It gives them the chance to dream and be curious. These quirky, fun bookmarks are perfect for those wacky books that make you laugh out loud. The crazy characters give kids the freedom to play with color, while the details encourage them to color with care.
Fun Tip: Kids can use the lines to keep track of their reading goals or the books they have read. But they could also use them to write down words they really like or think are cool.
