Duncan enjoyed coloring and owned many different crayons. One day, he received a stack of postcards from different crayons he had misplaced in various locations, both near and far. The crayons were ready to come home. Each postcard tells the humorous tale of a specific color crayon.
The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt with illustration by Oliver Jeffers does a wonderful job in keeping readers entertained until the very last page. This story makes a great read-aloud for preschool children and older. Children will enjoy listening to the colorful tales of Duncan’s crayons and it might make them think twice about caring for their own crayons. Recommended for children K-2nd grade.
