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:

Here’s one of mine–
What went wrong
These happy golden years;
Every child can succeed,
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.
