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!

Well, it’s been 8 whole months since I’ve done one of these with Shawn! I’m excited to get back into it and he is too! We’ve just been so busy and he lost some interest before, but judging by the fact he asked to do a few of them yesterday and today, I believe we are back on track! We are now at the point where he can write down his thoughts, which is not only fun but also coincides with his learning at school. Shawn didn’t realize the book’s connection with The Wizard of Oz but he did a great job!!! And apparently the bad people won out. Uh-oh.
My 4 year old is showing interest in wanting to follow his big brother’s footsteps so pretty soon we may have even more to show you!
I hope you enjoyed Shawn’s artwork and thoughts this week! Don’t forget to let us know what you think!
