We imagine we are not alone in making the occasional mistake. In fact, there is one on our Breezy Summer Reads bookmark! It isn't too giant, and we don't need to banish ourselves to an island for the oversight, but if you figure out what it is and stop by the Kids Desk, we will give you a small prize for your detective work!
