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 6 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!
Today is the Legend Edition!
“I think legend is about a flag that has a 5-pointed star at the top with 3 wings on the sides, and a circle in the middle that has a whole bunch of lines. The flag is for a pledge you say in a state called Legend. The school they say it in is called Prodigy.”
“I think it’s about a sign of the school Prodigy that has a black bird with blue around it.”
These are definitely some of my favorite cover art he has done so far!
**I have a question for all of you that I need your opinion on. A couple of blogs have started to also have some fun with their kids and book covers or are doing a hybrid of the idea. Would you guys like me to add a linky tool on these posts so you can see what other bloggers are doing as well? Just an idea, let me know!
I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week. Let me (and Shawn) know what you think!
