I especially like B. The fade-out globe at the top re-emphasizes the diverse culturality that Ben appreciates. Additionally, all of the flags remain sharply focused, not like on A where the top flags are partially faded and written over. (I feel that is disrespectful of the representative countries.) Your author Bio on B is also more easily read.
I like A. The boy’s salute stands out more.
I prefer cover B because it is easier to read – at least on my computer.
Thanks for your input Lisa. I appreciate it.
