A Kid's Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (52)

February 21, 2014 Judging a Book by its Cover 97

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 7 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!

The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

the art of lainey cover

“I think The Art of Lainey is about some art pictures Lainey drew and people were wanting to see them so they kept paying to see them. One of the paintings had some birds flying around trees. She probably used her money to get food and drinks.”

Cover Art:

Shawn was so cute when he was drawing this picture. He was concerned on how to draw noses. lol I still don’t draw those right myself. I love how he put together the ‘art’ from the title with what he thought the cover picture was telling us about the book. 🙂

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

    I just love the detail he put into this! Look at that dress! And I love how he made the correlation between selling her art and buying food and drink. What a great interpretation!

    P.S. I also have a hard time drawing noses, but I think he did a fantastic job. 🙂

    However, iif you realy want to speed up the learning process, there are audio CDs available that enable you to experience lucid dreaming
    in juist days. Have in your mind a clear understanding of why you want too be able
    to lucid dream: Do youu want to create a dreamscape as your
    own private playground, or do you want to be able to do something very specific.
    He decides who the people in his dream are, what places in his dream
    are and what the ending of his dream is.

    Senna’s faith provided him with an armour of self belief.
    Great horses have always made a mark, despite endless challenges tossed at them or
    opportunities taken away. As the field loaded,
    Rock Hard Ten balked at entering the starting gate, delaying the race by a few minutes, and an elderly asian man a few feet
    away from me decided that that was enough to sway him
    away from the horse, and he quickly rushed over to the betting terminal to void his
    ticket.
