For picture books, we use the designation JE (my public library uses it; I think it means Juvenile Easy, or something like that). 

If you are putting it in the elementary kids' area, I'd probably use J FIC, which is how we designate kids' fiction.

My take on this, although a bit late . . . 

When looking it up on, the subject listing includes "upside-down book" and "children's poetry".

Decimal number for poetry is . . . 

  • 808.81 Collections of poetry

IF APPROPRIATE FOR AGES infant thru 7 year old (Children's Collection), then in our library I would most likely place it in our section of "Poetry & Prayers", with the call number "C P New". 

 Others may choose to use the call number "C  808.81 New" . 

IF APPROPRIATE FOR AGES 8 - 12 years (Junior Collection), then our call number would be "J 808.81 New".
