Back of Book:
Quarrelsome talking crayons learn to appreciate one another when the narrator draws with them, thus showing them how each help create a bigger picture. The message of the book, to learn to appreciate rather than dislike other people’s differences, is conveyed.
In honor of National crayon day and the retirement of the Dandelion crayon I wanted to review “The Crayon Box that Talked”. I read this book the first week of school to help show my students how to get along. I loved how the little girl in the story teaches the crayons that if they work together they can make beautiful pictures. This is a perfect message to children that everyone is unique and special.
