Review

Sequel to The Day the Crayons Quit. One day Duncan receives postcards from his lost crayons who are all trying to find their ways back home from the sidewalk, from the under the couch cushions, and the various messes they have gotten themselves into. This sweet and funny story about acceptance and accommodating those who do not fit “in the box”. While it can open up a discussion about larger issues, young children will primarily find this book as entertaining. Its bright pictures and postcards will catch kids’ eyes and imaginations, even if it does not make them think too deeply without parental prompting.

Recommended. Sharon Tapia, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
