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!
“This is about a boy and a girl who are listening to a story on an airplane because they’re bored. And the kind of story they’re listening to is a story about what happened to some people at the beach.”
Shawn thought the name of the book was ‘Rainbow Rowell’ He went all “Ohhhhhhhhh” when I showed him it was Eleanor and Park. Then he noticed the ‘&‘ symbol and wouldn’t stop talking about how he missed it. lol
I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week! 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 they are doing as well! I hope you will give them a look see!
Don’t forget to let us know what you think!
