The Day the Crayons Quit

Poor Duncan just wants to color, but when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: his crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking–each believes he is the true color of the sun. What can Duncan possibly do to appease all the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best?

Follow-up activities: color-mixing demonstration with food coloring

Getrude McFuzz

This story recounts the tale of Gertrude McFuzz, who has one small, plain tail feather and wants big, bright, beautiful tail feathers. She soon finds berries that will make her tail grow to an enormous size when she eats them!

Follow-up activities: learn interesting facts about birds and enjoy a feather relay race
