The Day the Crayons Came Home

The Day the Crayons Came Home

Author: Drew Daywait

Why we recommend this book:

This hilarious book is a brilliant sequel to The Day the Crayons Quit and is a collection of postcards written by different colour crayons as they travel around the world.

Promote learning by:

This book is a great way to introduce children to more sophisticated descriptions of colour such as pea green and turquoise. Promote learning by asking children to identify the colour of the crayon as you turn to a new page. Children could use their own crayons to draw a postcard to send to family or friends.
