Sometimes we wonder if our stuffed animals or toy trains have feelings…but what if the crayons are tired of classroom antics? The Day the Crayons Quit is the interesting story of a box of crayons personified. Maybe your crayons like their paper wrappers…maybe they feel a little undressed without them. How would you like to hang around with your friends without any clothes? Now you know how peach feels. Which color in your box would say it gets the most work and never any time off like the other colors? My crayon box would have a very short green and a very new purple because those are my favorite and least favorite colors!
A fun tale with plenty of writing prompts and lessons in personification to go along with the entertainment. We have a copy in the library now!
