Book Display Posters: Full Year Bundle


How would you like all of your library displays for the entire school year, completely done and gorgeous, right now? This gigantic bundle saves you 30% on 195 full-color posters + 436 editable read-alike bookmarks in over 100 seasonal themes and genres for the entire year!



  • 12-22 full-color posters in 8-10 monthly themes and genres (posters are landscape view and not editable)
  • 36-40 read-alike bookmarks (4 bookmarks for each theme: picture books, elementary, middle school, and high school + adult) –all are fully-editable
  • Total pages= 305

These files are very large! Please allow some extra time to download. You have access to your MrsReaderPants purchases any time you need them, so there is no rush. Download what you need and get the rest later when you need them.


There currently 198 posters and 109 pages of editable read-alike bookmarks in the bundle. That’s 436 different read-alike bookmarks!

I’ve create a huge variety of posters for younger, middle, and teen readers. While not every poster will work for every grade level, several posters and all of the bookmarks in each set are appropriate for all grade levels.

All bookmarks are fully-editable, so you can customize them to suit your library collection. They are also fantastic collection development tools!

I am a school librarian and take great care including the latest titles that are well-reviewed and currently in-print. This huge bundle was developed over an entire year, released one month at a time. I update every bookmark once a year. When creating the read-alike bookmarks, I am careful that the titles represent diverse cultures, formats, reading levels, and genres.
