A Kid’s Perspective: Judging a Book By Its Cover (40)

June 28, 2013 Book Covers, Cover Art, Designs by Shawn, Judging a Book by its Cover, Samantha Durante, Shudder, Stitch 11

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!

Shudder is about stuff that is getting opened and somebody is shutting it. They are shutting a lot of stuff. The stuff is doors and a lot of windows too. Sometimes the are even gluing to shut papers that are ripped.”

Cover Art:

I must admit I giggled a little at Shawn’s thoughts on this one, but I totally see the ripped paper part! Also interesting about the opening and closing doors and any symbolism that may have.

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! πŸ™‚

    This post never failed to make me laugh πŸ˜€ It’s kind of fun to see things from little child perspective.
    And oh my God, that art. Did I mention how adorable it was?

    Send my love to little Shawn πŸ™‚

    LOL Shawn as always has some great ideas! πŸ™‚ I have no idea what this one is about so I’ll hope it’s about the doors and ripped paper πŸ™‚

    Lol! The ripped paper does make sense. However, that would be the most boring book ever. Pretty accurate on the drawing!

    I love how in depth his book descriptions are. After looking at this, I asked my 8 year old what she thought it was about and all she said was “I don’t know, something about tornadoes.”

    Aww, his drawing is so cute and he even remembered to add the ring on the cover which I didn’t notice in the original cover. Very observative πŸ™‚
