The Day the Crayons Came Home by Oliver Jeffers is the equally entertaining sequel to The Day the Crayons Quit. Written in the same witty tone, this book is as delightful as the last. It is stacked with bright, cartoony pictures and a font that imitates a child’s handwriting. These two combine to give the most joyful experience to little kids starting out with independent reading.
This is the perfect book if you want a light-hearted read for your little one. They will become a fan of the hilarious dialogues and storyline. It will encourage them to establish a love for reading and develop a hobby they will cherish forever.
Things went completely haywire last time as the crayons quit and left Duncan on his own. Now, after much time, Duncan suddenly receives a set of postcards from his long-forgotten crayon buddies. He finds out that some of them have been lost, some forgotten and some even broken on their journeys.
Duncan reads the postcards and finally understands that his crayons, much like himself, have feelings too. How will the rest of the story unfold? Find out more in “The Day the Crayons Came Home”.
Check out these two from the same series:
