I’ve had a lot of fun with our read the rainbow series. I love the idea of picking bright and beautiful book covers to decorate bookshelves like an over-the-top book-lover’s rainbow (if you want to know what this looks like in real life, Julie has an amazing rainbow library). So far, we’ve covered books with red covers, books with orange covers, and books with yellow covers.
Today, it’s time for books with green covers!

15 Striking Books with Green Covers
The Harder They Come
I love how this cover looks like a brilliant forest or hedge book. It really makes you want to open it up and see what the book is all about!
The Children’s Crusade
This book looks like it should offer an insightful look into how childhood shapes who we are as people. I would expect to feel smarter after reading this book.
Buy it here.
World Gone By
This book looks like it would offer captivating mystery and a compelling storyline that would force you to stay up past bedtime to uncover the truth.
Buy it here.
Silver Linings looks like the kind of book that would draw you into an amazing fantasy land and never allow you to leave. It almost looks like a magical fairy trap. I love the fireflies and the lantern.
The 39-Story Treehouse
I was obsessed with treehouses as a child, and I would have picked up this book to read immediately. Even though children’s books are full of color today, this cover still manages to stand out.
The Drunken Botanist
I don’t even drink much and I want this book. I love the engraved lettering and the deep green color. This book would make a beautiful display in the kitchen. I have a goal to decorate with books in every room of my house, so this would be perfect.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
I think this is one of the only Harry Potter books that I don’t own. I need to fix that.
The Pederwicks in Spring
I love the Penderwick sisters. This series is one of my favorite more-recent children’s series. This cover looks just like a perfect summer day.
Are You My Mother?
This classic book has an appealing cover for kids of all ages. My toddler loves this kind of book.
Every shelf requires the green book of Goodnight Moon. It is my favorite children’s book of all time. I love that the cover has stayed the same since the start. You can’t beat the original for this book!
One Hundred Years of Solitude
I wasn’t really interested in reading this book until I saw the cover. It looks like the kind of book that will stick with you for a long time based on the cover alone.
Kingdom Keepers: Disney Lands
This series of books is a fun Disney-themed fantasy all about saving the world from evil. I love the cover for this book in the series. It looks like it would be a lot of fun for children to read.
The Maze Runner
The Maze Runner is a compelling series that draws you in from the first page. This striking cover is the perfect representation of the story.
A is for Alibi
This dark, brooding color is exactly what you would expect from a murder mystery. I’d pick this book to read on a winter vacation.
Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk
I love this trend of angled, sketched art on children’s books. Even though I am not really into fairy story re-tellings, I really love this cover! I would pick this book out in a shelf full of books because the cover is so appealing.
