    My grandson is 9 years old znd he loves the timer!

    I put the reading timer in my grandson's Christmas stocking. If he goes
    to bed on time his parents allow him to read for 10 minutes. He sets the timer reads for 10 mins. and calls his parents in to tuck him in. No arguments about how long he's been reading. Everyone is happy!

    A good idea

    This was a holiday gift for my four grandchildren who can read, ages 10, 9, and two 7 years old. Learning to work the timer took more than a little bit of help from Granpa...The post-holiday break was still on when we left so we hope the kids are using them. They all have to read a specific number of minutes at night for homework so we hope these will prove useful.

    Good, but could be better

    This is great for kids who are supposed to read a certain amount of time for school - they like to use it and it motivates them to read (for a while, anyway).

    The bookmark is top-heavy, though, and doesn't actually stay in a book too well if you're carrying the book around - or even putting the book in a backpack. It should have a clip to clip it to adjacent pages.

    Mark My Time

    I bought these for all my grandkids (4) of reading age. They all love them because it is so easy to track their reading time for school. Because of the size of the timer, I was afraid they would think it was too heavy, but they loveit Plus it won't be easy to lose!

    OK

    This bookmark is an average purchase. I thought it was a little hard for an 8 year old to use.

    Handy but

    It's very handy to keep in my book when I need to count my minutes for school. But, when I enter 20 min, it counts for 20 min, 59 seconds. And sometimes the beeping just randomly starts really loudly. The battery doesn't last too long, either.

    This bookmark is awesome!

    When my son was in third grade, he had to start reading 15 minutes every night and he kept stealing the timer in the kitchen. I was in line at Barnes and Noble one day and saw this bookmark and purchased it. It is awesome. Not only does it count up, but it also counts down and is also a clock. So if he just wants to read for his 15 minutes he can count down, but if he wants to see how long he can read, he can count up. The only downside is when it's a new book and not too many pages have been read, because the bookmark is "top heavy", it tends to fall out. We just make sure theres a paper clip handy to mark his page in case it does.

    Great for young readers!

    I bought this for my 7-year old son. He often became upset with me when it came time for him to complete his required 20 minutes daily for school, arguing about the time he had actually spent. He now uses his bookmark timer and manages his reading time himself. He takes pride in his new independance and often reads longer than required. It was easy for him to learn to use and provides options for me to set an established reading time if he starts to slack off. Inexpensive way to solve many arguments about time limits.

    A bookmark that lets you keep track of your time

    I am 50 years old and have fun using the up counter. It allows me to keep track of how long it takes me to read a book.

    There is a countdown feature that you can set and it starts counting down. Great for use with kids. I always wanted them to read for a certian amount of time before they could go back to game playing or TV.
    I alwasys forgot what time they should be done. This makes fun for the kids while helphing you keep track.

    I just love mine!

    Don't bother

    A stop watch and regular book mark would work as well.

    Don't but this

    This bookmark is not user friendly, especially for children. And then within 3 days, the entire thing goes haywire!
