A collection of my favorite picture, short story, and chapter books that I hope to house in my classroom library!

The Day the Crayons Quit

The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers

Who doesn't love this fun story? This silly tale depicts the struggles faced by a box a crayons that belong to Duncan. I love to read this aloud to young readers. There are many opportunities to add ridiculous voices and accents that little minds love. This book could be used in math to graph which colors students like to color with the most. I would also consider using this text for Science. It would be interesting to study how long it takes for crayons to wear down, or what happens when different amounts of pressure is applied. I would even suggest using this book to accompany a class art project! I would allow students to glue crayons to a canvas and use a blowdryer to melt them. Imagine how proud they would be if you displayed this work in the classroom!
