There have been a lot of book spines under scrutiny lately. Teachers and writers perusing the stacks for the perfect choices. Stacking and restacking to find the perfect combination. These book spine poems are inspiring and a perfect way to play with words without the pressure of coming up with said words. Perfect for beginning poets, perfect for writers looking for new ways to say things. Give it a try! You will find that you love it. Here are a few of my most recent tries compiled in one office and then another and finally from my daughter’s shelves.
We’re going on a bear hunt,
I wish I were a princess.
My monster mama loves me so.
I love you through and through,
Dreams come true.
