Review:The Day The Crayons Came Home

We are great fans of Oliver Jeffers' here at the Smiling like Sunshine Headquarters so when we received his latest book, my heart was filled with happiness as I was sure the children would love this book, too.  Written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers, these books are a wonderful addition to your child's bookshelf. I had written shortly about the previous book, The Day The Crayons Quit, here.

One day Duncan receives a set of postcards from his crayons who have been lost, forgotten, broken – even melted in a clothes dryer and stuck to a pair underpants!He feels very sad when reading these postcards from his lost, broken or neglected crayons therefore he creates a place where “each crayon would always feel at home.” What a clever story!

The story is captivating and the illustrations are just stunning. Both the children and I had lots of fun reading it. There is a glow in the dark page which is also interesting for the children.
I was asked to tell you what colour crayon I would be. So I asked the children and they chose purple and turqoise as these are their  favourite colours.
