The Day the Crayons Came Home Review and Giveaway

Boy Mama Teacher Mama  The Day the Crayons Came Home

The other day, we shared a review of the fantastic book, The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. Today, we are excited to share a sneak peak at the sequel, The Day the Crayons Came Home.

We received our preview copy in the mail yesterday from Penguin Young Readers and immediately my youngest (6 years old) snatched the book from my hand, took it to the couch and “read” it from cover to cover. When he was finished, he said, “Wow, the person who made this book made great pictures!”  We then sat down and read it together. He loved it! I loved it! My eldest (8 years old), then came into the room, immediately noticed the book and set to reading it. His reaction? “I love it!”

If you haven’t read, The Day the Crayons Quit yet- get a copy! Read it! You will not be disappointed and your kids/class won’t be either. Then get set for the sequel which will be released August 18, 2015.

The Day the Crayons Came Home


(written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers)

One day Duncan was happily coloring with his crayons when a stack of postcards arrived in the mail. These postcards are from a whole other group of crayons that belong to Duncan. These are the crayons that got lost, left behind or neglected and are begging to return to the crayon box.

Maroon was only used once- to draw a scab and was lost over 2 years ago, tan cannot even tell what color he is anymore and is devastated because he was eaten and thrown up by the family dog and is now covered in carpet fuzz and brown is upset because he is always used to color poop.

Duncan is saddened when reading these postcards from his lost, broken or neglected so he gathered them all up and created a place where “each crayon would always feel at home.”
