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
“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.”
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!
