The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt

The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt promotes communication, creativity, emotions and different perspectives

Duncan’s crayons have had enough. They have quit, and the crayon box is empty except for a pile of letters. Each crayon expresses its grievances, requesting a change in their working conditions. 

Red, blue and grey feel tired and overworked, beige is naked, pink feels under-appreciated and black is misunderstood. Green, who has no personal complaints pleads with Duncan on behalf of fighting yellow and orange. “Please settle this soon because they’re driving the rest of us crazy!” Duncan will have to consider all their demands to persuade his crayons to come home.
