Libraries, like many other cultural institutions, have to get really creative nowadays to remind people that they still exist under all these lockdowns. One of the fresher trends on social media is the #BookCoverChallenge sweeping over Twitter. The mechanics of it are simple: people try to recreate book cover images submitted by libraries or from their own resources using what they have in their home.

From jabs at the quarantine toilet paper craze, to the more weird submissions, to the innocent and naive attempts of children, this challenge has delivered for sure. The underlying pattern that we see here is that children's books, or children's attempts with children's books, to be more precise, were definitely the most popular and most frequent. Perhaps it's because children are more perceptive to creative tasks, or perhaps it's the fact that parents have a unique opportunity to bond with their children. Or maybe there's just nothing to do at home.

In either case, the results are wholesome and completely positive—the longer you look, the more they make you smile. What are your thoughts, Pandas? Maybe you saw a book that you like yourself, or maybe you remembered your reading list or your debt to the local library? Share with us in the comments below.

Oh, I've seen this in the children's section of the library when I used to volunteer there! It's one of the newer ones, but I've sorta wanted to read it just for fun.(too late, I guess)

I always thought this was about how to become Michelle Obama. Only now do I realize that the title is "Becoming" and it's by Michelle Obama! XD lol

"Illustrated by Quentin Blake". Illustrators like this were the bane of my childhood entertainment. I have never found these sloppy kind of pictures pretty and I never understood why kids cannot get nice art.
