I'm back again today for the #12DaysofPictureBooks celebration with Penguin Books for Young Readers.
Take a peek at the 12 Days of Picture Books holiday gift guide featuring some awesome books your kiddos will sure to love.
Today is the last day, Day #12 and it's all about The Day the Crayons Came Home.
The Day the Crayons Came Home is the much awaited sequel to author Drew Daywait's 2013 bestseller The Day the Crayons Quit. In this book, all the crayons are lost and want to be returned to the crayon box. Each color writes a postcard to Duncan, the young boy who the crayons belong to. Each crayon has a funny tale to tell. Maroon Crayon is stuck in sofa cushions and was broken in half by Dad who sat on him. Turquoise Crayon who head is stuck to Duncan's stink sock. Each crayon has a story.
This is another well designed book featuring illustrations, photos, and text that makes these darn crayons seem so real. Chloe loves this book and laughs at each crayon color's personality and special storyline. For instance, throughout the book, Neon Red Crayon sends postcards updating Duncan on his travels. Chloe especially loves the glow in the dark page from the Glow in the Dark Crayon. The premise of this book is just too clever! Daywait's sense of humor just makes us laugh out loud when we read this book. After reading this book, you can be sure that your kids will always make their crayons are put back into the box, aka "home".
