The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt

What would you do if, like Duncan, you opened a new box of crayons only to find that the crayons had quit on the job? Duncan is even more surprised to find letters enclosed from each of the crayons. They beg Duncan to listen as each color explains why it feels so undervalued. In the end Duncan finds a way to make all his crayons know their true value—alone and together. A satisfying story and illustration combination. Ages 3 and up. (Philomel)
