Inspired by an article on Babble called, Judging a Book by Its Cover: A 6-year-old Guesses What Classic Novels Are All About, I have asked my 5 year old what his thoughts are on a few Young Adult covers lying around the house. To take it a step further, I also had him make some cover art!
This week is The Hunger Games Edition! Which is perfect timing for the DVD release tomorrow! Woot woot! We had a lot of fun with this one and his answers really had me giggling. 🙂
“I think it’s about a bird playing games. He has to shoot stuff at targets with a bow and arrow.”
“My finger is hot while I hold the back of this book.” (I die laughing!) “I think the bird is looking for something because it is hunting for some pennies so when he finds 100 pennies, someone will give him a dollar bill.”
“Now the bird is trying to find something, maybe the dollar bill, on some clouds. The bird has been playing games in the books.”
I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week! I think these answers have been my favorite so far! I was seriously cracking up about the pennies and dollar bills. Who knew Catching Fire would also be a math lesson? LOL Let me (and Shawn) know what you think! 🙂
