Ages ago, when working at my old library, I found this image on Pinterest:
As far as I can tell, the image came from Greenville County Library. So I'm giving them the credit, though I will admit that it could've come from anywhere (oh the joys of Pinterest).
But the point is: I got out a poster board and copied it exactly to hang as a display in my library. Because I think it is hilarious. And it worked so well to promote our (somewhat rarely used) poetry section. In fact, I've got a list of some of my favorite poetry books below.
Sadly, the picture I took of this display I made has been lost to the sands of time. So you'll just have to use your imagination.
Maybe this will help?
Anyway, I thought I'd also share some of my favorites children's poetry books, as well. I will admit that I, myself, am not the most well-read when it comes to poetry, but there are some beloved classics and new releases that definitely deserve to be noted.
Ah, and I'm sure there's so many more! What are some of your favorite poetry books? Do you have a favorite poet?
