Book Traveling Thursdays: A Book Every Child Should Read!

Featured Image -- 266


This week I thought I'd try out a new book blog meme to give some variety: Book Traveling Thursday!
"Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Catia from The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle's Book Blog. The idea of this group is check out the list of weekly themes for each month in this meme's Goodreads page and simply pick a book to match the theme! Once you've found a book, explore different covers of various editions for that book and make a post about it.  To find out more, you can check out our Goodreads group!

This week's theme is a children's book that you think every child should read, in honor of today being Children's Day! For this pick, I chose one of my favorites:
The Giving Tree by Shel Siilverstein
Original Cover Design:
 The Giving Tree
Other editions:
The Giving Treeএকটি সুখী গাছের গল্প
Щедрое деревоدرخت بخشندهدرخت بخشنده
Top Row: Indonesian, Bengali
Middle Row: Russian, Farsi
Bottom Row:  Persian 

Growing up, I never even considered that there were other cover editions for this book, and I had a lot of fun discovering some of these! I was really intrigued by how inventive they all are, although I think I'll have to stick to the US edition that I grew up with.

What do you think of these covers? Do you have a favorite? Do you have a children's book cover? Let me know!
