October 18, 2013 Judging a Book by its Cover 15

designs by shawn copy

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!

3:59 by Gretchen McNeil

359 cover

3:59 is about a person who woke up at 3:59 in the morning to go to work and it was very dark. And she went to work and was going inside and found money on the floor. She followed the money because it was a trail and found a diamond at the end of the trail.

Cover Art:

I love how he did the peekaboo of the face on the side. Do you see it? lol Ad I really need to find me a job with a money trail that leads to diamonds!

Sorry it has been so long since our last cover post! We are jut starting to get into the groove of 2nd grade so hopefully we will get back on track with posting more of these. I didn't add a linky tool but if you posted some cover art I'd love to see it! Please leave a link in the comments if you got one. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s thoughts and artwork this week! Don’t forget to let us know what you think!

    Wow, that is quite the story Shawn thought up! I wish I could follow a money trail to diamonds, too! I love the hidden smiley, too. 🙂 And no worries…we’re still acclimating ourselves to kindergarten, and Katie hasn’t felt like doing one of these in awhile. 🙁

    I love Shawn’s interpretation of this book Sara, and I adore the little smiley peeking face too! My sister has hardly anytime anymore either, but I’m hoping that she will be able to do a post for me this month! 🙂
