Savvy Kids and Book Covers

“There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts.” ─ Charles Dickens

It has been said you can’t judge a book by its cover. “Not so,” claimed one of my library students. He held a book up to my face and stated, “This cover needs to be changed.”

The WISCONSIN volume from the Hello U.S.A. series sported a picture of a former Green Bay Packer, wearing a number four jersey. I’m not one to cave into pressure to remove books with questionable covers or text from the library, but, like a good referee, this young student’s judgment call was right on target.

I had to agree the cover was definitely in need of a new look. With a little creative brainstorming, we came up with an alternative cover.

Jump around for Bucky Badger and Wisconsin!
