Book spine poems – having fun with books!

Creating book spine poems is great fun and is an enjoyable school or home library activity. Book spine poems are so simple to do! Just browse a bookshelf, choose titles that you can put together to make a short poem or story and then take a picture of the book spines. We had lots of fun creating ours!

Our first poem is about going to bed;

Our second poem is about animals and dancing!;

Our third poem is about transport;

We could have created so many more book spine poems. Imagine how much fun you could have doing this in the library!

The learning doesn’t need to stop with creating the book spine poems. Children can also be encouraged to sort their book poems alphabetically by title, author or illustrator. If they’re working in the library they will also need to understand the Dewey system to make sure that they put the books back onto the right shelves!

We’d love to hear your suggestions for book spine poems. Please leave the titles of the books you choose or your blogpost links in the comments.Book Spine Poems - Story Snug

    • I’ve seen poems created using novels and thought it would be fun to create one with picture books. We’d love to hear any poems that you make up 🙂
