Counting is as easy as 1… 2… purple?… in this charming book of numbers from the creators of the #1 New York Times Best Sellers, The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home.
Poor Duncan can’t catch a break! First, his crayons go on strike. Then, they come back home. Now his favorite colors are missing once again! Can you count up all the crayons that are missing from his box?
From the creative minds behind the The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home comes a colorful board book introducing young readers to numbers.
You don’t need to have read the other Crayons books in the series in order to enjoy this one, but it does help. It’s a fun counting book with crayons with silly personalities and sundry complaints about their colorful existences—what’s not to like? My one complaint is that the childish font used for much of the text makes it hard for my new little reader to make out the letters and words.
