The Day The Crayons Came Home (Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers)


Hello, everyone! Our book today is The Day The Crayons Came Home, by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers, the hilariously silly sequel to The Day The Crayons Quit.

If you’ve not read The Crayons books, the concept is cute and simple: a little boy named Duncan receives letters and postcards from his crayons, detailing their complaints, requests and labor concerns. This sequel focuses on crayons that have been lost, misplaced, or damaged, and their funny postcards to Duncan complaining of their lot.

These books are very tongue-in-cheek and lots of fun to read. The illustrations are hilarious as well, and the text and art compliment each other well. Two things: the book can be a little long for baby bookworms, and there is one poop joke, in case that’s not your style. Still, JJ loved the first Crayon book, and she loved this one too! Baby Bookworm approved!
