I think whoever came up with the idea for this digital bookmark is brilliant! Have you guys seen these? Sarah used a gift card she got for her birthday to buy one this summer. The bookmark tracks the minutes/hours you spend reading.
This bookmark also has the option of setting it to count down. Our third grader is required to read 15 minutes each evening. We can set it to count down and beep once her 15 minutes are up!
Sarah bought her bookmark at Borders and I think it was around $10. I think this would make a great gift for school age kiddos
The company that makes the bookmarks also makes a portable digital metronome. Cool! Sarah is taking piano this year so I'm thinking a metronome might be fun to put in her Christmas stocking!
