Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Goodfather
Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
6.0 / 7.0

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.

Mom of Boys
Mom of three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.
5.75 / 7.0
Lemony Snickers
Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
4.75 / 7.0

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.
