I struggled a bit this week understanding the theme. What is considered a footstep on a cover? To me, a footstep is an action or a sound, which doesn’t translate well to a static cover. Is the theme supposed to be footprints? Someone walking or running, paused mid step? Just featuring feet in general? My guess is that it means footprints but I can’t find a cover that fit, so I chose one featuring someone running and therefore they are taking steps with their feet.
The middle cover is the one I read (probably in middle school). I didn’t notice at first but in the third cover his toes are sticking out of the shoe!
I don’t really have a reason for liking this one best, I just do!
Which one is your favorite? Do you agree with my pick? Let me know in the comments!
