Description

  • Preschool/Grade 2 level book about protesting crayons
  • Encourages color recognition, vocabulary development, creativity
  • Each crayon has complaints about things that they color
  • An exciting story of coloring outside of the box
  • Darling, lively illustrations
  • Amazon Best Children's Book of 2013: The Day the Crayons Quit, Drew Daywalt’s clever story of a box of crayons gone
    rogue will get the whole family laughing at the letters written by the occupants of the ubiquitous yellow and green box.
    The combination of text and Oliver Jeffers' illustrations match the colors' personalities beautifully as the crayons
    share their concern, appreciation, or downright frustration: yellow and orange demand to know the true color of the
    sun, while green--clearly the people pleaser of the bunch--is happy with his workload of crocodiles, trees, and
    dinosaurs. Peach crayon wants to know why his wrapper was torn off, leaving him naked and in hiding; blue is exhausted
    and, well, worn out; and pink wants a little more paper time. The result of this letter writing campaign is colorful
    creativity and after reading this book I will never look at crayons the same way again--nor would I want to. ---Seira
