The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt
The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt promotes creativity, emotions and different perspectives.
A stack of postcards arrives for Duncan. They set out a series of complaints from a group of neglected crayons.
Duncan’s dog ate Tan, Neon Red was left by a hotel pool, Maroon is under the sofa, Yellow and Orange melted together, and Pea Green is changing his name to Esteban the Magnificent because everyone hates the colour.
