The Day the Crayons Quit
“One day in class, Duncan went to take out his crayons and found a stack of letters with his name on them.” Duncan’s crayons write him a series of letters to plead their cases for better treatment, and the result is beautiful--and hilarious. All my kids, ages 3 to 10, love to hear this one read aloud. They die laughing at the peach crayon every time. Just read it--you’ll see what I mean.
