The Day the Crayons Quit

My son received this wonderful book, The Day the Crayons Quit, for his 7th birthday from our dear friends. It was a huge hit with both of my children, current ages four and (you guessed it) seven. My son loved it so much that he brought it to school to share with his class.  We received a note in return, expressing how much the teacher and all the kids LOVED it.  I am sharing it with you because it makes a terrific gift. With Christmas right around the corner, I figured you may need to find something sweet to share with the little ones in your life.  In this story, author Drew Daywalt weaves an imaginitive tale where the crayons come to life, expressing sentiments of frustration and suggestions for improvement to their owner.   The illustrations by Oliver Jeffers are equally as gorgeous as the narrative.  My children giggled a lot, especially at the embarrasing predicament of peach crayon.

The Day the Crayons Quit comes with 4 thumbs up from our family.  I highly recommend adding it to your family collection or giving it to a child or educator in your life.  Enjoy!
