Welcome to my virtual library! This site showcases some of my favorite books to read with my students.

The Day The Crayons Quit By Drew Daywalt

The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers

This is a silly book that brings crayons to life. The crayons are writing letters to their owner Duncan why they have decided to quit. As Duncan is reading all the letters, he gets a really good idea on what to do next. One great activity to have the students complete after reading this story would be to have the students draw a picture with all the colors they have in their color box, just like Duncan did.
