Friday's Book Covers and Titles

It's Friday, Book Covers and Titles.

It's Friday, and time to look at book covers and titles. This Friday we will be looking at children's covers and titles, specifically, children ages 3 to 5.

As mothers and grandmothers, fathers and grandfathers, we, hopefully, buy our children books. These are special times while they are 3 and 5. And having the opportunity to spend quality time with them, opening new worlds by our reading books to them are memories in the making they will remember as adults.

Since we want to choose the right books, we not only look at the colors, and the titles but we also, look to see what this book is about and if it is appropriate for our little one.

But, for today, let us focus on the cover and the title first.

Remember as an author even though this is for children, it shows you which colors are important as well as titles.

The first row contain books 1 through 3

The second row contain books 4 through 6

Here are some fun questions for you to answer based on the books below.

Which cover grabs your eye first?

Which title grabs your eye first?

Does the title tell go with the picture?

Doe the title tell you what the book is about?

If you were going to choose to read one of these to your child or grandchild, which would you choose to pick?


  1. I love all of these covers!

    Which cover grabs your eye first? A hard choice since they're all great. I'll go with "When I Feel Frustrated."
    Which title grabs your eye first? "Sullivan of the Sea."
    Does the title tell go with the picture? Yes.
    Does the title tell you what the book is about? Enough to make me curious.

    Fun game. Keep it up!

  2. I love the covers, especially Bedtime Little Bear. I have two books for children, with bright and colorful covers. Licky the Lizard and Grumpy the Gator. :-)

  3. I loved all the covers, but was drawn to Bedtime Little Bear. :-) All of them would make great books for kids.

  4. Eye grab: 3; Title: same--3; Title tell: 2, 3, 5, & 6; 3, 5, & 6 told me what the book was about. Absolutely I would choose to read 6 to my grandchildren. Who can bedtime and sleepy baby bears?

    Thanks again, Susan, for the fun. Hope my comment appears this time!
