More Books to Smile About: An Easy Library or Classroom Display

Bookendssmiley-displayCindy and Lynn: Five years ago we posted about this easy smiley-face bulletin board, and Booklist‘s inaugural Spotlight on Humor issue seems like a good excuse to share it with readers who may not have seen it the first time around. Since 2010 there have been more books with the iconic smiley face gracing their covers that you can add to the yellow display. Here are the two we remember, including one that Booklist starred to launch the Spotlight on Humor:

Bookends readers, what other yellow-smiley-face covers have you seen that aren’t on our lists? Publishers and authors, feel free to comment too! We’ll add the additional cover art here. Who can’t use more smiles?

    Adam Silvera’s MORE HAPPY THAN NOT has an artistic take on the yellow smiley face. And there are many more examples here — — although some of them are definitely not for younger audiences.
