Made you Look” by Shari Graydon and illustrations by Warren ClarkRating 4 stars out of 5.Advertising draws us all in, you have to admit it. Whether is it Nike’s swoosh or McDonald’s “I’m lovin’ it” catchy slogans and funny ads are something we remember. Shari Graydon’s book, “Made you Look”, is about catchy ads, how commercials work and the laws of advertising. It is published through Annick Press and is a quick read at only 97 pages. This book is primarily for students in third through eighth grades that have an interest in advertising and want to know more about the subject. Did you know that advertisers aren’t allowed to tell kids that they have to buy a product? They do, however, make you want to buy it by showing how just buying the product will make you happier, smarter or more popular. I discovered that some advertisers even pay people who are attractive to sell their product by sending them to popular clubs and having them talk about the product as though they just regular people who enjoy the product. A great part about this book is that encourages you to look at ads in a different way.
