    The sad story is finally told - some crayons can color more things than other crayons; and some crayons sit in the crayon box even as their friends live colorful lives.

    A playful preschool concept board book about colors that uses the illustrations from previous books. This will be a fun way to introduce the series to younger readers.

    Without the mirth of Daywalt's other "Crayon" books. Not recommended to fans of the series.

    Just rehashing the content from the original story and turn a profit. Not worth a read.

    Using parts of the original story found in The Day the Crayons Quit, Daywalt and Jeffers introduce young children to their colors. Each crayon is introduced along with the things they have colored (red has colored Santa, strawberries, hearts, apples, and a fire engine. The inclusion of questions throughout the story give parent and child opportunities to talk about what's happening in the book. And the final page includes all the colors in one big picture, giving the child a chance to identify the different colors. This makes for a delightful introduction to both crayons and colors and the possibilities of both.

    Author Drew Daywalt and illustrator Oliver Jeffers have done it again in the continuing crayon saga in picture books! This is not your typical book about colors. Daywalt uses humor and surprise to tell this story about colors using his now infamous cast of crayons. Jeffers completes the book with his humorous illustrations to tickle the funny bone and bring on the emotion of each character.Published by Grosset & Dunlap.#mustread #afavorite #crayons #colors

    This was such a cute little book. The pictures and facial expressions are just adorable and the colors are very vivid.I would like to use this children's fiction book in a kindergarten classroom to help learn colors and coordinate those colors to items. I would also like to use it to show the class how they are each unique individuals but when we come together as a whole we can create some wonderful things together.

    A cute addition in the "Crayon" library. An easy and fun read that incorporates using colors. A great way to introduce 2-4 year olds to the "Crayons". Some of the story is borrowed from the crayon series but, it is still a joy to read. Of course, the "Crayons" would definitely do a book about colors. It was so totally obvious.

    Great book for color recognition. My 2 year old had a great time associating colors with objects she knew and the story was cute too. The end of the book was the best allowing her to find each of the colors on her own.

    Orange crayon is being cheated, but I can't get enough of these illustrations of humorous asides by the crayons. I love the subtle push towards nonconformity! This is great for preschool and Kindergarten!

    2019-04-06 07:49 doesn’t love books by the amazing Oliver Jeffers? And who didn’t love ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’? Well if you’re a fan (and I have no doubt in my mind that you are) then this book is sure to be a hit in your household.‘The Crayons’ Book of Colours’ is exactly as the title suggests. Unlike the narrative of the original this book gives each of the crayons its chance to shine and demonstrate the amazing variety of images that can be created. Illustrated in the child-like style associated with the series, the crayons draw all manner of things to demonstrate their variety, including elephants, clouds, rainbows, baby penguins and grapes...Read my full review here: for very young children as an introduction to the series.

    I have loved Daywalt's other crayon series. This book fell short. First I didn't realize it was a board book sine his others weren't. Second, probably because of the first, the story was non-existent. Third, why do beige and peach get snubbed in this book? They are vital colors.

    This is another super cute book with crayons. I love to color and draw, so this is perfect for me. It's another one that would be perfect for National Crayon Day to read to the younger kiddos. It could also be a fun way for the youngest kiddos to learn their colors and the names that go with them.

    My kiddo loves this one. It is very cute even if he does not get some of the sly humor (like the black crayon colors rainbows and beach balls, and the pink crayon wants to color not only princesses, but a dinosaur and a cowboy).

    I LOVE THE CRAYON BOOKS! I think they are so cute and funny! They never fail to get me laughing. This book wasn't any different. When the beige crayon says they can only color wheat, you laugh because it's so true. They have spoken upon something that was always there just never expressed with such humor. The crayons are taking a stand! You better buy this book and listen!

    Used with older kid storytime to talk about similarities and differences in multiple versions of books. The kids really enjoyed discussing the "baby version."

    A delightful book full of a multitude of coloring options by very creative crayons.

    I am more than a little annoyed. The words are different but 90% of the illustrations are exactly the same as the crayons book of numbers. It's lazy and cheap.

    PERFECT for babies/toddlers to teach about the different colors and what objects are made of them. KUDOS! Highly recommended

    This board book is a nice introduction to some of the thing different colors represent. Add silliness and you've got a great book.

    The crayons from "The Day the Crayons Quit" are back. Each crayon introduces things that crayon has colored in, such as Red crayon coloring strawberries and hearts.This could easily be used as a felt or prop story in story time.

    The crayons in the coloring book are each bright and full of things they like to color. But what can they achieve when they blend their colors together for a special surprise? Great color teaching book with a touch of humor.
