The Bessie Minor Swift Foundation has donated money to Summit Therapy Animals to provide all R.E.A.D. teams with "dog personalized" bookmarks to distribute to children. Vistaprint has offered Summit Therapy Animals a discounted non-profit rate on bookmarks with free shipping. The bookmarks from Vistaprint are high quality printed on cardstock and laminated. We have had children report these bookmarks lasting for 4-5 years (or longer)!

The bookmarks have a personalized front and a "Summit Therapy Animals" back. Here is an example of one such bookmark distributed in the 2018 Library Summer Reading Program:
Personalized Front
Back of Bookmark

You have a choice of 3 front designs: horizontal name, vertical name or "I read" tagline. Examples:
Horizontal Name
Vertical Name
"I Read" Tagline

Each R.E.A.D. team should email an image of your dog partner to Brad Perry ( to make your bookmarks (and choose one of the front designs: horizontal, vertical, "I read"). Brad can crop and adjust most photos to fit in a bookmark, simply provide him an image of your dog partner.
