My musings on reading and writing

It’s not often that a picture book brings giggles from both children and adults. But that is exactly what happens when you read aloud “The Day the Crayons Quit.”
The picture book, written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers, is about a box of crayons that tell Duncan exactly how they feel. Red is overworked. Pink is never used. Yellow and orange are quarreling. What color is the sun?
Many times the author and illustrator never meet. That’s why it is important for the author to show enough of the story with words so that the illustrator can tell the story with drawings.
This book is fun. Let me know if you have read it or recommend other picture books that make everyone laugh.
