Cover Characteristic – Children’s Books


This is a new meme hosted by Sugar & Snark. It came about when Sugar was wondering which cover to use for her #70 Cover of the Week post. Sugar kept on thinking of more than one, and they all seemed to have a theme/characteristic. So she decided to switch things up a bit!

Each week we will post a characteristic and choose 5 of our favorite covers with that characteristic. If you want to join in and share your 5 favorite covers with the weeks particular characteristic, then just make a post, grab the meme picture (or make your own) and leave your URL in Linky (so we can visit).

You don’t even need to participate, just stopping by and saying hi would be great! Don’t forget to stop by the other participants!

      I know what you mean! Pure cover love!

  • Petra

    Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times made my list as well, and I absolutely love the covers for A World Without Princes, and The Cabinet of Curiosities. 🙂

    • Sugar & Snark

      I think I might just have to pick up some of these books and read them regardless of their genre 🙂

  • Love the cover of Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times. They’re all gorgeous, though. I went more nostalgic with my choices.

    • Sugar & Snark

      Nothing wrong with nostalgia 🙂

      • 🙂 love the revamp, as well.

        • Sugar & Snark

          Thank you so much!

    These are all so cute, I’d totally read them as a kid because I am a sucker for pretty covers. I still might read them now 😀

    • Sugar & Snark

      Hahah same here! One day my kid will have so many of these books, he/she won’t know what to do with them all lol

  • I really like childrens and MG books as they often have great, illustrated covers. Esp like the covers to The School of Good and Evil series and Wildwood.

    • Sugar & Snark

      The School of Good and Evil cover looks like manga, makes me want to pick it up even more!
