Colors and Book Covers

We’ve all heard the phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” However, in libraries a book’s cover is often the first thing that gets the attention of a potential reader. How important are covers in your book selections? I remember that when I was a young adult I was frequently drawn to books with blue covers.

In April the library is having a display of favorite books of staff members. I’ve noticed that my recent juvenile favorites all have a cover with a white background and bright colors. The covers weren’t actually the reason I read the books (I read them for a Children’s Literature class). However, I think it’s interesting that the stories I liked had similar looking covers.

It’s not surprising that I like books with cheerful colors on the covers as I like to make crafts using bright colors. On Saturday, April 21st we will have our drop-in craft from 10:30am-11:15am. We will be making a thunder and lightning cloud craft and a rainbow craft. The Children’s Room page of the library’s website has booklists of recommended books for various topics. Check out the A Rainbow of Colors booklist on books featuring colors.
