I wanted to do something fun to celebrate National Poetry Month. I specialized in poetry in my undergrad program, so it holds a special place in my heart.
I stole the idea for this display from Pinterest (a great resource for book displays). The only difference is that I’m turning our “tree” into a contest. Each tween or teen will write their contact info on the back of an ornament; their poem will go on the front. At the end of the month, the librarians and I will judge the poems. The winner will get a Barnes & Noble gift certificate. 🙂
I also put out some verse novels to complement the tree. All and all, I think it turned out well. Happy National Poet-Tree Month!
