  1. How might I order Colon bookmarks? I asked for posters, but I don’t know whether you make bookmarks available in hard copy. Thank you.

    • The bookmarks are available for printing (for non-commercial purposes); you don’t need to send off for them – this is probably a better link, actually – http://www.bookweekonline.com/bookmark. CCBC suggest using card but I suppose you could use paper then fold and glue it so the sketch instructions are on the back. My suggestion would be to download the image so you can print out multiple copies for a class on a single sheet… I hope that helps.
