About The Day the Crayons Came Home Book
The book is told with postcards written by the crayons. They are all crayons that Duncan has forgotten about in some way. Each postcard features a story of where that particular crayon forgotten and can be found, whether it was in the couch or outside melting in the sun. The postcards are signed in a punny way, you are sure to giggle!
It is filled with lot of humor and is a definite must read!
Great for ages 5-8.

From Penguin Random House:
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.
