Thread: Good idea?

  1. #1

    Default Good idea?

    I've been using a dollar bill as a bookmark since it's convenient, I always have one, and it doesn't have enough value for me to fear it getting stolen.

    Anyway, if your used a $5 bill as a bookmark for your kids. When they finish the book, they get to keep it. Obviously it increases in size as they get older to a $10 and $20 bill. Probably won't go to $50.

    And I'd read the books too, so they can't pretend they read it.

    I'm thinking we start small. When we read to them with Clifford or something, We keep a $1 bill in there and they can keep it, so the tradition can start young, like trading a tooth for a dollar.

    It's what I would do if I didn't have to keep mine exactly how it is for madsquirrels and erazer.

    If you were giving a high school student $20 per book, you might have a hard time convincing them to get a part time job (and at that point they would have to be wary of bookmark theft). Might be better to throw a "value of saving" lesson in and rather than increase the size of the bill, put matching funds in a savings account.

    It's just to pique their interest in reading.

    I think it's a good idea as well. Especially since my daughter is old school and refuses to read on her Kindle. She wants the smell and feel of an actual book.

    I prefer convenience of a Kindle. This is the first paper book I've read in years. Which is why I was so lost looking for a bookmark, I just pulled out a dollar bill.
