"The Day the Crayons Quit", by Drew Daywalt, is one of many favorite books on my shelf. This book is about a little boy's crayon collection that has had enough! They are fed up with Duncan. The crayons are tired of being used so much, made to color weird things, only used to color boring coloring book pages, and many more funny reasons. This book is not only funny, but the illustrations make it even more fun and definitely kid friendly. They even look like a child drew them! How fun is that? I would keep this book on the shelf for a fun read. You could also read the story and use as a quick writing activity about a time your students got tired of something and what they did to solve their problem. This could also be used with kindergarten and incorporate color activities with it. Any way you use it is sure to be fun and have your students laughing!
