If you’ve got a young reader at home, it’s very beneficial to keep a supply of reading pointers.

Keep them accessible so your kids can use them whenever they feel like they need them.

It’s a great way to help them practice reading and gain confidence in their reading ability. They’ll have a little help along the way.

They also easily double as a bookmark and they’re reading and waiting for the next time they pick up a book.
