Crayons have feelings, too, in this funny back-to-school story illustrated by the creator of Stuck and This Moose Belongs to Me–now a #1 New York Times bestseller!
Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking—each believes he is the true color of the sun.

What can Duncan possibly do to appease all of the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best?

5.0 Be sweet to your things
This is a FANTASTIC book to read to any grade to show them the importance of taking care of your things. I would make an anchor chart and have the students tell me the difference between being respectful and taking care of your belongings vs. overworking and not caring for their things. They need to...

The Day the Crayons Quit is a wonderful book about each crayon and their feelings on how they are used. This book could be used in the classroom when introducing different perspectives to the class. Even though we may love to use the red crayon, the red crayon may be tired of us using it all the tim...
