Thank you for so much positive feedback on Shelve-it! We have started working on our nonfiction version so feel free to leave an idea or topic for a nonfiction book spine. I tried to work in a few shout outs to family and friends in the fiction version and plan to add more in the nonfiction. I'd be happy to make a spine your students might recognize as "yours"!
On another note, my fantastic sister-in-law is a second grade teacher and recently started blogging at Adventures in Grade 2. She is one of the most passionate, dedicated teachers I know and has great ideas to share so be sure to check her out!
