Spine-tingling

--Delana H. Stewart

On Facebook today, Scholastic introduced me to book spine poetry. And now I am hooked! For their book spine poetry ideas, click on this link:

http://oomscholasticblog.com/2012/08/book-spine-poetry-an-experiment.html. Scholastic got their idea from here: http://100scopenotes.com/2012/04/02/2012-book-spine-poem-gallery-2/. On this link you will find a gallery of photos of book spine poetry done by kids. Some of them are great!

Here’s one of mine–

What went wrong

These happy golden years;

Every child can succeed,

Finding joy–

The sound of hope!

Here’s a link to another book spine poem of mine:

I’d love to see what you and your children come up with!

You might consider book spine poetry competitions, or perhaps all work together to come up with couplets, haikus, limericks, etc.
