April is National Poetry month! Last week, I posted some book spine poetry that I made using the titles of books in our collection. This week, I’m inviting you to come down and check out a book to celebrate the month.
Of course, we have collections of poetry, but that wouldn’t be very fun or creative, would it? So instead, I put together a display of novels written entirely in verse. The difference between these books and normal collections of poetry is that in verse novels, all of the individual poems are organized so that they tell a story. Each chapter or section is a different poem and it makes for a very different, fun reading experience.
I’ve created a display of books showcasing some of our novels:
If you’re interested, please come down to the library and check a few of them out. If you can’t make it down, fill out a book request form and we’ll have it for you the next time we visit your school.
