BZM Picks - The Day the Crayons Quit

The review has been kept as a draft for long now, and it is high time I post it. The Day the Crayons Quit is Z's current FAVORITE besides Tiddler and Highway Rat.


Book: The Day the Crayons Quit
Author: Drew Daywalt
Illustrator: Oliver Jeffers (and what amazing illustrations)
For ages: 4+ years (Z loves it at 3.5 years but Z is O.K with books for slightly older kids because she has been exposed to books at an early age)

After hearing the amazing online reviews, I pre-ordered the book, I had watched the book here and fell in love with it.

It arrived on Z's mum's birthday (which coincides with MLCB's birthday). So we were Super Duper Happy and excited about reading the book.

Why I picked it and what was my Reaction:
Since I had seen the book read video earlier, I knew I will love with the book and I did instantly, not just me, but Z loved it as well. I loved the illustrations by Jeffers, its is so real, so different and not cluttered al all.

Z's take:
The moment Z browsed through the book, she went away... I was sad, that Z didn't like the book :-( ... but she came back with her box of crayons. Then as we read through pages, she took out one crayon at a time and kept it besides the page.

What it is about: It is a book about Duncan, actually his crayon box. Duncan wants to colour, takes out his box of crayons but sees all of them have quit. Why have they quit, what are their problems and will everything be sorted???

How We Read it:
Since every crayon has a 'personality' of its own... We have a different voice for every colour and Little Ms. Z LOVES it.

Favorite Line: Z says she loves the book and I love when the Orange Crayon says "Orange! You glad I'm here? Ha!"
