Cover Judging

I stumbled upon a a great blog post today on Strollerderby, via Babble.  Incidentally, is Strollerderby not the greatest name?  Anyhow, the blog post is a photo slideshow of classic book covers, and descriptions of the books.  But the real genius is that the books are described by the blogger's six-year-old daughter.  She recounts that on their many trips to local bookstores her daughter is constantly asking what certain books are about.  She tries her best to describe them, but eventually asks her daughter what she thinks they are about.  The result is hilarious and quite charming.  My personal favorite is the description of Jane Eyre:

"This is about a girl that goes mining. 
I don’t know why, but she looks like she would go mining, mining for gold. "

 Brilliant. Read the entire blog here.
