The cute woodland animals can be put at the corner of the last read page from where they can judge you if you keep the book waiting long between reads. You can also take that as a friendly welcome when you resume the literature. It’s a matter of perspective really.
These cuties are a hit as return gift favors for kids parties and stationery care packages.
Feel free to scribble the name of the book you read with it, soak the animal in water and plant it in some good loose soil to watch it grow you some flowers.
