Printable Book Covers: Subject Specific
One of the problems with some textbooks covers for school is that they can make it difficult to distinguish between various subjects. In other words, your kiddo might find themselves in English class with their math book. Yikes!
These subject specific printable book covers (which can also be used as binder covers!) take care of that problem. Not only do they have the subject name on them, they’re different colors making distinguishing books at a glance super easy.

Printable Book Covers: Subject Labels
If you are using a standard brown paper bag to cover your kiddo’s books, make sure he or she can tell them apart by using these printable subject labels. They’re customizable, simple, and (best of all, in my opinion) free.

Printable Book Covers: Composition Book Covers
Everything is better with a little glitter right? While this project says it is specifically for composition books, I don’t see why you couldn’t make a few minor modifications and use it as a printable book cover template free option. (Just don’t put glue on your textbook!)
