Title Fun

The directions are simple:

  1.  Stack your books
  2.  Snap a picture
  3.  Share it

That’s all it takes to create a spine poem. So head to your bookshelves or the library and start stacking books to create a spine poem. Here are my latest poems stacked and ready to tell a tale:

I Wanna New Room There's a Nightmare in My Closet Psssst! It's Me . . . the Bogeyman Walter Was Worried

    The last one is my absolute favorite. Whoever came up with the idea of book spine poems was a genius. It is so much fun to play with the titles.

    I am always amazed at how well you and others create spine poems…I have tried and have not so well. I will keep trying, and maybe one day…

  3. Elsie, love your spine poems. You should also post this to Poetry Friday. April is just around the corner! I get all tingly just thinking about poetry month.
