Request your free bookmark

If you've ordered Kinderbücher lately, you already are acquainted with our very own Booky.

If you haven't placed an order lately, then now's your chance to get your own free Booky, the Bücherwurm. Created just for us by the very talented Anne Jaeger of Seattle, Booky is a cute little bookworm who just loves to wiggle up and read books with you. Let Booky make your German reading times just a little more special.

We'd love send you your very own Booky bookmark! Just send an email with your name, address, and whether you've ordered before to Since he fits into an envelope, Booky can go anywhere in the world so it doesn't matter where you are - just send us a note and we'll mail him off to you.


OOPS - we are currently out of stock but hope to print more soon.
