I loved reading this book! Not only is it hilarious, but it also serves as a great tool to teach about different points of view and being sensitive to others feelings.

Sometimes, you just know a book is going to be good when you pick it up. This is one of them. Communicating, letter-writing crayons. What's not to love?

The blue crayon is my favourite. At the end every colour is used.

This is one of my favourite picture books. Drew Daywalt nails it on the head. Just wow!

The Day the Crayons book is such a creative, and funny book! It definitely brings a new perspective to your mind. It is a great story to read, and reading everyone’s different perspectives is mind opening. Different crayon colors get tired of doing their work. Some feel like their owner is using them too much, whereas some think their owner barely uses them. So their solution is to quit ! They each have a different story to tell. I love the way the crayons each have different opinions, and have completely different backgrounds. I would recommend this to younger children, but no matter the age it is a funny book!

I absolutely LOVE this book and it is really for any age of reader. I used it as a writing prompt for elementary students to write from the perspective of any common object. It was a lot of fun and yield some very creative writing! Enjoy!
