Don’t Judge a Book by Ally Hooten


This was written by my 12 year old niece, Ally Michelle.  She is a very talented writer and a girl with a sweet heart.  Enjoy!

ImageIf you have ever heard the phrase, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” you obviously know what that phrase means. Don’t go to a library; pick up a book and say, “This book looks STUPID!” You haven’t even read the abstract!! Judging a book by its cover would be like judging a person by their outward appearance. I totally agree with this phrase! 

The Bible says that only God knows the heart. We only see the outside appearance. For instance, one year my family had a family reunion. There were quite a few people there that I had never seen before in my life! But there was one man that really stood out. He had long hair and a beard. All I could think about was, “That homeless guy is related to me?!” I didn’t even know if he was homeless. I just looked at his outward appearance. Then I talked to him and I found out that he was really a delightful and friendly person!

So don’t judge anything by its outward appearance. Read the abstract of a book before you say that it is a piece of junk, or get to know the person before you judge them by their outward appearance. You will find out real quick that it will help you get through life and you will have amazing friends!
