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 The Sea of Tranquilt (that’s what he called it) is about somebody that didn’t see a bucket with a spoon in it so he was walking and kicked it over and white paint spilled all over the place. Someone walked into the paint and said, “I think this is milk on the sidewalk.””
I was curious if he would notice the profiles on the cover and he didn’t. Very interesting, indeed! I was surprised he said paint and milk and didn’t think of ice cream with all this heat! This is why I love doing this, to see what he sees. 🙂
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! 🙂
