I enjoy reading but I absolutely love books in general! I learned to love books as a child when my parents gave me Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women for Christmas when I was about 9 years old. It remains my all time favorite book and I even still have that original book on my shelf.

DIY bookmarks are a fun project for adults and children especially during the winter months while shut inside. The children may be a little more likely to enjoy reading when they get to use the fun bookmarks they made themselves. I made the Ribbon and Button Bookmarks in the video, with my granddaughter and I know how excited she was to begin using hers.
