How to Write a Book Spine Poem

You can find poems anywhere! Even in a stack of books! Creating a spine poem is much like writing found poetry but instead of using the text from a page of a book or article, you use the titles printed on the spines of books. Simply arrange the books so the spines can be read like a sentence.

You don’t need a large number of books to create a spine poem, just an imagination. The children’s books in my poem below came from my small home library.

Forest has song,
winter bees...
Neema's reason to smile.
Thank you, Earth.
