Cindy: School librarians and teachers know that it sometimes takes superpowers to survive those last few weeks of the school year. When the lazy August days of Pinterest planning for creative displays are a dim memory, I start looking for quick and easy displays for my library. Today, Scholastic and Dav Pilkey get a big cheer from me because their publishing swag gave me a great way to pull together a book display. I’ve worn the “Reading Gives You Superpowers!” cape during our homecoming Superhero Spirit day, but this morning I taped it to my book display case and added a variety of superhero books. Pow! Bam! Wow! Instant display, and one that is sure to be popular. If you don’t have a Captain Underpants cape, head to your local party or costume store and buy or make one from a red tablecloth.
Here are a few recent titles that are in my display:
Black Widow: Forever Red, by Margaret Stohl
Fallout, by Gwenda Bond
I am Princess X, by Cherie Priest
Nimona, by Noelle Stevenson
School for Sidekicks, by Kelly McCullough
Wonder Woman at Super Hero High, by Lisa Yee
