Poem #10 -- Book Spine Poem, Notables Edition


Half upon a time
one crazy summer,

the dreamer,
spilling ink:

Zora and Me,
Lulu and the Brontosaurus...

We are in a book!

To make this book spine poem, I used only books from the 2011 NCTE Notable Children's Books in the Language Arts.  For an AMAZING gallery of book spine poems, check out 100 Scope Notes. Then go get a stack of books and give it a try yourself!
