Covers By Katie
Okay, so I totally stole this idea from Sara at Forever 17 Books, who got the idea from an article on Babble called Judging a Book by Its Cover: A 6-year-old Guesses What Classic Novels Are All About.  I just discovered her lovely segment, and I immediately requested forced my own five-year-old daughter Katie to provide me with some of her own cover art artwork and then asked her what she thought the book was about.

This week, Katie gave me her take on the following book:

Add to Goodreads

"It's a really rainy day and the rainbow is out with the sun and then the rainbow changed colors and melted with the rain and that's how the colors got like that."

Cover Art

Arclight as envisioned by Katiebug

I loved this book almost as much as I loved listening to Katie tell me what she thought it was about.  I always love when she chooses to recreate a really colorful cover because it will inevitably have something to do with rainbows.  =)

Have you read this book or do you plan to?  What do you think of Katie's guess at the premise?  

Did your little darling create a work of art based on a book this week? If so, be sure to link up with Sara over at Forever 17 Books.


  1. Now that is a very creative synopsis and I would so read it. Great job Katie. love the picture too.

  2. The rainbow melted with the rain! I love that! I tried to get Shawn to do this cover this week but he said no. *sadface*

  3. So cute. that is a very good rendition. I am always excited to see what Katie will come up with every week! Have a lovely weekend, Jen!

  4. That's a really creative description. I love it! I have it as an Arc and do plan on reading it sometime soon.

  5. How cool would that be if her description could happen? A rainbow that melted with the rain? That would be so awesome. She has a fantastic imagination!

  6. I love love love this drawing, and I love love love Katie's description of what she thinks this book is about! Aw. <3
