The worst children's book covers. Please don't share these with your kids!

Posted on

Cycle-of-Life-and-Death

There’s some strange stuff marketed to our kids, and the people Heavy.com came up with a list of the top 20 worst children’s book covers. And like they said, I think it’s safe to say you can go ahead and judge these by their covers.

They’ve really hit all the high points. Polar bear sex, playing with fire, disabled people. This is real life, people. But don’t worry! There’s an awkward book cover for everyone. My favorite cringe-worthy cover? I Found a Dead Bird: The Kid’s Guide to the Cycle of Life and Death. Can someone say morbid? I think it’s safe to say putting a dead bird on the cover of a children’s book is not the best idea in the world.

After clicking through, what’s your pick for the worst children’s book cover? And are there any more covers that should be added to the list?
