Make a bookmark for our Book Club

KidsPost readers know that we love animals. We’ve featured rescued seals, therapy dogs and baby zoo animals on these pages recently. This summer, we’re going to visit with unusual animals. Some have powers that aren’t normal. Some exist only in myths. And some tell their own stories. Kids­Post Summer Book Club is going on “Animal Adventures,” and we hope you will come along.

The book club kicks off June 16, but before we start, we need your help. Using the template on this page (or anything that is 2 by 5 inches), design a bookmark that illustrates the “Animal Adventures” theme. The winning design will be printed on the bookmarks that will be given to club members.
