Although they are many different colors, the crayons in a box discover that when they get together they can appreciate each other and make a complete picture.
I love the rhyming and moral of this story. The little narrator proves to be wise beyond her years as she helps a box of crayons that can’t get along learn to see the unique contribution each person can make.
This is a great book for teaching children about accepting others and the diversity that makes us more complete, together. The book is a creative way to introduce the topic, as crayons of different colors at first express disdain for those that are different but later, after the full art is created, accept their differences as beautiful representations of the variety in the earth.
