A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (12)

December 7, 2012 Book Covers, Breathe, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Judging a Book by its Cover, Sarah Crossan 20

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!

“I think Breathe is about 3 people, two are girls and one is a boy. They are walking on some rocks that are black, purplish red with cracks. They are walking towards some buildings that are in a half of a bubble because that is their home.”

Cover Art:

I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week! We have been doing this for a few months now and always have a blast! Since a couple other blogs have expressed interest in doing something similar, I have decided to add a linky tool, so that you can also check out what others are doing as well! I hope you will give them a look see!

Let me (and Shawn) know what you think! πŸ™‚

    Shawn did an awesome job with the cover this week! I just love how he did the dome. I think I like it better than the original! πŸ˜› And his interpretation is perfect!

    That is the most adorable thing I have ever scene! What a great idea! I’ll try to remember to visit every week. This is just too cute! And I believe you do have quite the artist on your hands.

    Spent all day emptying out the garage yesterday so didn’t get a chance to do my own this week. Maybe tomorrow. πŸ˜‰
