Doodlemark® Makes Mark with String of National Awards
DoodleMark®, the world’s only write and erase bookmark, is a simple innovation fast becoming a favorite new literacy tool recently honored with multiple awards including: “Mom’s Choice Award” recognition from Mom’s Choice Awards, “Product of the Year” recognition from Creative Child Magazine, winner of “Best Picks Children’s Products Award” for Dr. Toy along with a “Seal of Approval” from The National Parenting Center – all within the past couple months.
Doodlemark has a growing list of accolades and awards from the people who play an active role in shaping early literacy for children -- parents, educators, industry pros and of course – children.
David Keefe, inventor of the DoodleMark®, noted, “We’re proud of the national recognition DoodleMark has received, which confirms the reason the product was created. Reading and writing serve as the foundation for educational and personal growth for children and DoodleMark strengthens that foundation, while being all about fun. We believe in every child’s potential and DoodleMark is now playing a key role in helping each child reach it.”
DoodleMark, launched in December 2010, is the bookmark redefined. It’s a simple innovation that is as portable and creative as it is affordable at around $8. On top of that, the DoodleMark clips onto any book and children can bring the fun of learning with them everywhere they go. It’s powered simply by a child’s imagination enabling battery-free, hands-on, interactive learning.
DoodleMark gives children the chance to hone their reading and writing comprehension skills at the same time. From recognizing sight words, learning new vocabulary, practicing pronunciation and spelling, it’s all done in the moment, as they read. In a world where children are bombarded with digital toys and games that create virtual learning experiences, the DoodleMark celebrates the simplicity of the hands-on, authentic learning experience.
DoodleMark’s value is reinforced by childhood development experts who believe doodling can help jump-start memory and increase focus. Studies show that children who doodle in their notebooks are often creative thinkers and may retain information better.
Jennifer Kendra, General Manger for ReMarkable Reading Concepts, noted, “DoodleMark creates an interactive experience not only between children and their favorite books, but also between parents and their children who have even more of an opportunity to interact with books together while reinforcing reading and writing skills."
