Here are some book bulletin board ideas that will help you display your work. Good literature should be introduced at a young age. Reading aloud to children is so important. Picture books these days, are not only for the younger grades. Making bulletin boards for novels, brings the book to life as novels often have limited illustrations. Book Reviews can be written and illustrated by each student and added to the book bulletin board display. Also check out Library Bulletin Boards!
