World Laughter Day 2021

Laughter is the best medicine in the world.’ 

World Laughter Day

World Laughter Day is an event celebrated worldwide to raise awareness of the healing benefits of … laughter! Research has found that humour is one of the best forms to increase the retention of learning and children are much more likely to engage in learning when they are happy. 

With so much going on in the world, it might seem like there isn’t much to laugh about. But if you stop and take a moment, think back to all of those funny moments we’ve all had and just take a minute to relive them. Now laugh and just let it out! It feels good doesn’t it? 

Sometimes all it takes is to be reminded of the good times! 

Did you know that laughter may even help you to live longer? A study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor outlived those who don’t laugh as much! 

With that in mind, here are some funny (but cheesy) bookish jokes that are sure to make you laugh!

Why are first books afraid of their sequels?
Because they always come after them. 

Why does the ghost always need more books?
She goes through them too quickly.

Making reading fun is at the heart of Sweet Cherry Publishing – and with fun comes lots of laughter! Here are some of our funny book recommendations…
