The Day The Crayons Quit – by Drew Daywalt (2013)

The Day The Crayons Quit


Imagine grabbing your coloring book and crayons, all ready to make that best-picture-in-the world  for Mom to put on the fridge. You open up the crayon box, only to find that every color in the box has gone on strike!

This is what happens to poor Duncan. Instead of finding crayons that are happy to make a masterpiece, he finds a stack of letters, each one with a different complaint about being treated unfairly. It’s absurdly funny, and reminds me of the whining we utter in life. Read it with your favorite small person, and remember that life is not always fair, but we have to color together. A good book to end the Thanksgiving weekend with.
