Mark-My-Time Digital Bookmark

I'm in favor of any product that gets kids excited about reading. We know children love electronic gadgets, and what better than one to keep track of their time spent reading? This is a really simple idea and at the same time, a very clever one. In addition to holding your place, these bookmarks also will help parents monitor and record daily reading goals for their children.

The plastic bookmark features a digital timer which is powered by a standard watch battery. The timer acts in two separate functions. You can set the countdown timer to alert the reader when they have completed their required reading time or set the cumulative timer which stores time over multiple reading sessions until the reader chooses to delete it.

While kids will like the fun technical aspect, parents will appreciate the practicality. Made from polyethylene plastic, these are built to stand up to the abuse that kids can dole out. They come in three kid-friendly colors: deep purple, bright blue and neon green. I like that the timer runs on a simple watch battery, which is inexpensive and easy to replace.

Mark-My-Time bookmarks are useful, durable, and fun to use. This is a great gadget that is easy to use, and really helpful with the daily reading routine. Make reading time ... anytime!
