April is one of my favorite months for many reasons. We have spring break in April, the forsythia blooms, and it’s National Poetry Month! Today, as I was gathering resources and thinking about ways to celebrate, I had fun creating a few book spine poems.
Look! Look! Look!
Outside your Window
The Tree That Time Built
Forest Has a Song
Red Sings from Treetops
The Frogs and Toads all Sang
in the swim
At the Sea Floor Cafe
When the Moon is Full
Up North at the Cabin
A Stick is an Excellent Thing
Orange Pear Apple Bear
Tea Party Rules

What a creative way to celebrate the wonderful month ahead…your poetry book titles became a poem!! And you got me excited to start pulling out my favorite poetry books. Thanks for getting me excited about this wonderful form of writing!
I love that! How fun!
A very “meta” approach to poetry. Nice 🙂
Love these! A lot of writers have been publishing these. It amazes me the great variety we come up with. The first one here is really my favorite. I love trees.
These are fantastic! I am honored to see FOREST in a book spine poem! Thank you! xo

I LOVE book spine poems, and yours are fantastic! I love the first one and the one that begins “Firefly July” the most. Yay for April and National Poetry Month!
How fun! I love how your grouped your different books into sets that made fun poems to read. I need to play around with my poetry spines too.
