EBOOK NEW (The Day the Crayons Came Home) Ý Drew Daywalt

Oke extended over a whole book like the last but still it made me laugh in places each postcard like the last book but still it made laugh in places each postcard each crayon s story is uniue and funny in its own way and the art is good for both parents and children Kind of ends a little lamely on my opinion as all the multi colored crayons are finally back home and get housed together again we are family etc But the kids are liking that ending better than meBut when I read this to ten year old Henry he thinks I am too harsh Dad It s funny It s good He thinks four starsThe whole family will read all these and I will hereafter not make the review until I get all the ratings and will add final vote for FAVORITE from each family memberFun Yep I have posted on the fridge already the family rating sheetDave 35 starsTara 4 starsHarry 10 35 starsHenry 9 5 starsLyra 8 5 starsSo I decided to bump up my original 3 star rating to a 4 to reflect the family ratingsI should say I rated The Day the Crayons uit 4 stars last year it was one of my top five new illustrated books though I didn t LOVE it I liked it a lot and my kids liked it 5 stars A pile of postcards arrive sent to a small boy from crayons that over holidays days out and garden drawing sessions have been lost Each colour describes their predicament Aimed at young children but my 12 yr old instantly picked it up and said it was great and thought I d taken it out of the library for her to read Funny and beautifully presented One minor downside I hate it when books reinforce negative stereotypes the green crayon says all children hate peas The children I know love vegetables and I don t like children being told this The rest is really good though I totally love these crayon books And ust for the recordI m rooting for Neon Red.
