A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (31)

April 19, 2013 Book Covers, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Judging a Book by its Cover, Suzanne Young, The Program 9

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!

“A girl and a boy are watching a program on tv and they’re not sitting on a couch because they don’t have one. There’s bookshelves all around them. The program is Ellen.”

Cover Art:

One guess what I was watching at the time Shawn was working on this. lol He was really excited to do this cover, which is awesome because I’m reading it right now. ๐Ÿ™‚

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™‚

    I love it! And Ellen, yes. What else would they be watching??? I can’t wait to read this book, it looks really interesting ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aww, I love that he imagined the things to the left and right as bookshelves! I’m not sure what they are. I hadn’t even noticed them before ๐Ÿ™‚

    I laughed so hard when he said they were watching Ellen. So cute!

    I love seeing the two different takes on the same book — did you guys know that you were both choosing the same book?
