A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (45)

August 9, 2013 Book Covers, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Judging a Book by its Cover, Paula Weston, Shadows 21

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 is walking to her grandma’s house and then she sees a pair of red wings in the sky. And then she starts following them instead of going to grandma’s house. At the end when she got to it she found a faerie with red wings.”

Cover Art:

It’s like the faerie version of Red Riding Hood. lol This is one of my new favorite drawings. He really did a wonderful job with this one.

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! 🙂
