Title: The Day the Crayons Came Home
Publisher: Philomel Books
Available: Now
Genre: Picture Books
Source: Library

I'm not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his crayons sure are a colorful bunch of characters! Having soothed the hurt feelings of one group who threatened to quit, Duncan now faces a whole new group of crayons asking to be rescued. From Maroon Crayon, who was lost beneath the sofa cushions and then broken in two after Dad sat on him; to poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's stinky socks after they both ended up in the dryer together; to Pea Green, who knows darn well that no kid likes peas and who ran away—each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.

Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers have combined to create a companion book every bit as funny and kid-friendly as the #1 bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit.

This was a fun book, but the writing in several of the colors may prove to be a challenge for new readers, but for a read along book this is great.  Learning that maybe we can come back home, no matter what the reason was for leaving.  Looking to seeing even more of these books in the series?
