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!
“I think it’s about a river that is above land. The water is brown because the sky is turning black because it’s nighttime.”
“I think The Way We Fall is about a girl who is walking and comes to a hill that is tall. There is a river and an island below it. And there is a ship near the island.”
Lots of water type thoughts for Shawn this week! Sadly, I have not read either of these yet! I must soon so I can see how close he was. I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week. Let me (and Shawn) know what you think! 🙂
