If a student's life was a Penguin Classic, what would the cover be?


Penguin Classic BookIf you’re sitting near your bookshelf, take a glance at it and find a book published by Penguin. It didn’t take long, did it? Readers know a Penguin classic when they see it: the orange zing of the book spine; the distinguishing minimalism of the cover design; that adorable, bow-tie wearing penguin.

Our love of this publisher got us thinking about your students. What if they designed their own Penguin book covers? If their lives were Penguin classics, what would the covers look like? Designing their own book cover could be a creative way for students to introduce themselves at the beginning of the year—or you might even use this as an alternative to the tried-and-true book-report assignment.

To download a PDF version of the templates, simply click on the images below or stop by the Penguin website.
