Celebrate Poetry Month with Book Spine Poetry!

In honor of National Poetry Month, I created a few book spine poems in the Children's Room. My favorite one is pictured here. It reminds me of one of my favorite literary characters, Anne, of Anne of Green Gables, and her friend Diana walking through the Haunted Wood on the way home from school in Avonlea. It was great fun to look through the books I'm surrounded by every day and create new ideas out of the words on the spine.

I first learned about Book Spine Poetry from the blog of another librarian who works with children in Michigan. You can view a gallery of poems on his website here. What a creative way to celebrate poetry and have fun with books! Stop in and give it a try or try it at home and take a picture! Let me know what you come up with!
