Make Poems from Books

Indoor Activities

Did you know the Record Shop has a small library of books? The writers of our community love this literary space!

Poetry doesn’t have to be difficult. Let’s create and remix poems from book titles! There are so many creative possibilities with this easy indoor activity.

You will need: Books

Optional: An audience


At your home or library, gather lots of books together. Read the book titles on the spine. Then stack the books with the spines facing you. You can create a poem by stacking the spines in an order!

Keep reordering the stack of books to remix different poems. Recite your poetry to an audience, like your family and friends. Inspire them to make their own stack of poetry. It’s fun to read different poems from the same book titles!

You can be an artist with words. Your poetry journey begins with books!
