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?

3.5 The Day The Crayons Quit By Drew Daywalt
This is a silly book that brings crayons to life. The crayons are writing letters to their owner Duncan why they have decided to quit. As Duncan is reading all the letters, he gets a really good idea on what to do next. One great activity to have the students complete after reading this story would ...

When Duncan goes to use his crayons he finds notes from all the crayons and how they are feeling! Red is overwhelmed. Purple is tired of being colored outside the lines. Beige doesn't like to be called light brown or dark tan and doesn't like being in second place to Brown! Grey is tired. White is f...
