I’ve created a nice neat package for you. All you need to do is print, gather the books and bags, and assemble your bags. Yep, I’ve got all your book buddy sheets and forms done. Here is what you get in the download.
There are book buddy sheets for the following titles.
I’ve chosen these for their popularity and ease of finding in second-hand shops or in book club orders. I’ve also included some multicultural titles to help create a more well-rounded list.
