The Day the Crayons Quit
Apparently, crayons of any color can get the blues.
One day, Duncan finds letters from each of the crayons in the box, and each of them has a particular complaint. Red is feeling a bit overwhelmed, having to color fire engines, apples, strawberries and “everything else that’s RED.” Pink has the opposite problem, not having been used even once. Black would like to be used to color something other than outlines of things that will eventually be filled in with other colors. As for yellow and orange, they’re arguing about which one should be the color of the sun. In the end, Duncan has a very creative solution to make everyone happy.
Parents, note that although the words and ideas in this book are delightful for kids, the handwritten style of the font can sometimes make it challenging for younger children to read on their own.
