CHANDLER HEIGHTS, AZ – In addition to its numerous other parenting and academic awards, The mark-my-time™ digital bookmark has been awarded the 2008 Gold Award from the Family Review Center, the 2008 Mr. Dad Seal of Approval Award and the 2008 Kids Product of the Year Award from the Creative Child Awards Panel.

The Family Review Center is an unbiased resource for families looking to learn about companies and products. The Family Review & Award Center staff regularly reviews and recommends products that reflect the family values of the publication The Family Review.

The Mr. Dad Seal of Approval is an endorsement that carries the powerful credibility of America’s leading authority on successful fatherhood. It was created in response to fathers and families who want products and services that promise to improve family life.

To earn the Mr. Dad Seal of Approval award, a product must help dads get or stay involved with their children, improve the quality of time fathers and children spend together, improve father-child relationships, help dads be better parents and help dads be better partners.

Creative Child Magazine is a national publication that focuses on providing the latest information on how to nurture creativity in children. The Creative Child Magazine’s Toy Awards Program is unique in that all products submitted are reviewed by moms, music educators and early education professionals.

“We are extremely honored to receive these awards,” said Maureen Farinella, founder of mark-my-time. “We are always hearing from parents and teachers who are satisfied with our product’s ability to get kids excited about reading, but tangible awards like these are powerful endorsements.”

The award-winning mark-my-time digital bookmark conveniently and accurately records reading time. Made of durable polyethylene plastic, it comes in three hot colors—neon green, neon blue and neon purple. Its slim form fits neatly between the pages of any book. At the top is a digital clock that’s powered by an inexpensive, replaceable watch battery. Parents can choose to set a countdown timer with alarm that alerts students when they have completed their required reading time without them having to ask every two minutes, “Am I done yet?” Or, there is a cumulative timer, ideal for multi-session reading, which tracks total time read throughout the day.

The mark-my-time digital bookmark is available nationwide at leading bookstores, discount drug chains and wholesale clubs at an average retail price of $8.95.

“This has been such a helpful tool for her because she used to stop reading, pull herself out of the story, just to come and ask me how much longer she had to read, every five minutes! Now she doesn’t need to. This has been an extremely helpful tool in her schooling. I recommend it to everyone and it would make a great stocking stuffer for all the kids on your list!”
