How does it feel when you wanted to look for Crayons to do some colouring and you found a stack of letters addressed to you instead? Well that was what happened to Duncan.
Duncan was looking for his Crayons and found a stack of letters written by them addressing to him, mainly to complain about how they were “treated” by him.
The kids love this book because the crayons were really funny. There was the orange and yellow fighting to be the color of the sun and the “naked” peach color. They couldn’t stop laughing at the jokes.
For me, I like how the book introduces some uncommon color (e.g. peach and beige) to the kids and what are the objects that is in that color.
And more importantly it teaches about different kind of feelings. It’s good to let the kids know, apart from happy, sad and angry there are other kinds of feelings that may better describe how they are feeling. For example, the girl asked me what is ’empty’. It may be a little difficult to explain and also for them to get the concept right away. But I think one day when they experience it, they will know what it is and better articulate them to others.
This book can be found in most National Library:
- Section: Junior Lending Picture Book
- Call Number: English DAY
There is a sequel to this book which I will share the next week. Meanwhile, enjoy the jokes in this first.
