October Displays

Looking to do something other than your usual Halloween displays?

Here are two easy displays for October!

Make a display by color.

I chose autumnal colors (red, yellow, orange) for this display.  The books don't have to be from any certain genre or classification, so it's a good way to get some books on display that typically don't get as much attention as some of your favorites or the kids' usual checkouts. 


"Time to Hit the Books" display.

Gather a variety of baseball books to arrange for a display during the World Series--fiction, non-fiction, biography, poetry, etc. This is also a great type of display if you have reluctant readers who are boys, since they often gravitate towards sports books when they "HAVE" to read!
