A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (30)

April 12, 2013 Book Covers, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Jennifer E. Smith, Judging a Book by its Cover, This is What Happy Looks Like 18

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!

“There’s a boy and a girl that are riding a boat when it is 6:30 in the morning. There’re having a vacation and have to have the boat to take them across the river.”

Cover Art:

6:30 in the morning! lol I love how he took the sun as a sunrise, a start to the day. Symbolic to the start of a relationship? Hmmm…

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™‚
