Book Spine Poetry

Poems don’t always have to rhyme. Drop in, anytime between 3 and 5, and create. Stack books to form a witty, sad, or intriguing free-verse poem, or even one that does rhyme.  Take a picture (we have cameras) and post them online.

Celebrate Teen Read Week with this creative way of  “putting together” poems.

Snacks provided.
