VERY engaging book!

Beautifully done book with a story everyone can relate to! Makes a perfect gift and why not include a brand new box of 48 crayons too!

I know this book is receiving high reviews & is on several "best" lists. As a former children's librarian, I'm not sold. It's a great idea -- the reason I bought the book. However, the stories of some colors are a bit dull, one major color was missing from the book & the ending seemed just tacked on rather than being a completion of the story. I haven't read it to kids yet and am anxious to see how they like it.

    Cute idea

    Great idea. But, it didn't really hold my grandkids' interest. Too verbose. It might've been more fun if there were more questions-- asking the kids (readers) to figure out how they might over-use each color crayon.
