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 Extinguish is about a person’s heart that is part water and part fire and the water is putting out the fire in the heart. Then that person’s heart is no longer on fire. The fire part wasn’t healthy and now it is.”
I love how Shawn connected the title with what was happening in the picture on the cover. And his heart almost looks more the shape of a real human heart, no? lol Great job Shawn! Also, this book is excellent and you all should read it.
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!
