The last few years when we gave our 3rd graders their bibles I asked the staff and session to give me their favorite and most meaningful Bible verses. All those verses are on the bookmark. Then, I went through each bible and highlighted the verses to get them started! I emphasize to them that I want their Bible to be "loved" and "used" and that I didn't want them to look brand new at the end of the year :) They are allowed to write and make notes in them and that I started for them by marking those 15-20 verses :) You can print them front/back so that the rest of the verses are on the back. I printed them on cardstock and then laminated them!
