A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (29)

April 5, 2013 Ashley Elston, Book Covers, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Judging a Book by its Cover, The Rules for Disappearing 24

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!

“Someone is walking on the road and the road is called Mill Creek Road because there are creeks everywhere. She’s walking because she’s lost some tools to fix her stove that’s not working. It’s fall so there are lots of flowers on the ground.”

Cover Art:

I have no idea where all of that came from. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚
