Reading Rainbow

IMG_6638“Butterfly in the sky, I can fly twice as high. Take a look, it’s in a book, a reading rainbow.” To create this “reading rainbow” I took children’s book covers in different colors and made a rainbow gradient as a display on one of the doors to our library. Should I do the same on the other door, so something different? If you want to do something similar, I’ve saved you the work of having to curate a collection of book covers based on color. If you want the covers you can download them by clicking here.  I hope these bring as much joy to your classroom or library as they do to ours. This wall not only brings joy, it generates conversations among students and can be a great source of book recommendations. If you have ideas of what I should do on the exit door, please leave them in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.

  2. This is a great idea! Thank you for sharing!! Did you print book covers in 8×10 format or did you print them smaller, say in 5×8 format?

  3. What do you use to affix them to your door? It looks fabulous and I’m thinking of using this idea on our main door into the library. You rock!

  4. I think it would be awesome to have quotes from books about coming home or coming back soon on your exit door. I know they are out there.
