REVIEW by Tash Cerny
My kids love coloring with their crayons. They use them nonstop, and I love that their imagination and creativity have no bounds.
But I could start a museum about the strange places crayons have shown up in our house! Everyday is like a new archaeological discovery — except in this case, Indiana Jones is me, and the lost ark is my son’s brown crayon.
If this sounds at all familiar to your home, then The Day the Crayons Came Home is the perfect book to continue to encourage your child’s imagination and playful attitude.
Remind them that putting away their crayons and respecting their possessions can be a positive thing with this heart-warming and funny story about some crayons who just don’t want to be forgotten.
The Day the Crayons Came Home is about just that — missing and forgotten crayons finding their way back home.
In this follow-up to Drew Daywalt’s instant classic, The Day the Crayons Quit, Duncan discovers that when it comes to his crayons, he’s got more to think about than just which colors to use in his pictures.
Your kids will love this sequel story that not only entertains, but also reminds them that every crayon needs a home — and that home shouldn’t be under the couch.
At 33 pages, The Day the Crayons Came Home is a great addition to story time for all ages. And, with a special glow in the dark page, The Day the Crayons Came Home is sure to be a new favorite, encouraging your child not only to use their own crayons more (and more respectfully), but to also interact with the book’s pages and story.
Make story time with your child more colorful with this creative and cute book!
