April Fool's Library Display: 11 Funny Book Covers!

I'm admitting straight up that the idea for this display is not mine. Rebecca from Hafuboti was so nice as to let me expand on her posts Library Fools and More Foolish Than Ever with eleven of my own silly/funny/foolish book covers. I love photoshop and I love funny books, so basically, it was a match made in heaven.

So without further ado, here are eleven book covers of popular picture books/early readers for your April Fools pleasure. Hang them up on a bulletin board or wall for patrons enjoyment. Or number the covers on display and have kids write down the correct title for each number for a small prize. OR, even better, have some blank papers out for kids to make up their own silly titles or stories!

You can either click on the picture and save it to your computer, or click on the Google Drive link below it for 8.5x11 PDFs of each cover. The actual book & title are also linked case you couldn't tell what I'm parodying.

"Alexander and the Very Good Day" PDF (based on this book)

"Are You My Brother" PDF (based on this book)

"Vociferate George" PDF (based on this book)

"Cows the Tap Dance" PDF (based on this book)

"How to Paint a Grandpa" PDF (based on this book)

"The Cat with the Bow Tie" PDF (based on this book)
