My toddler loves this book so much she sleeps with it. She can quotes some of the crayons and loves to point out all the different colors. I love this book about using labels to judge a ....crayon.

Why I liked this book- This seems the ultimate ¿be yourself¿ boo
Why I liked this book- This seems the ultimate “be yourself” book. It shows that if you just judge by appearance, you can get an entirely different outlook than on what’s inside the “wrapper”. The illustrations are quirky and fun to look at. I like how the white page is really “paper” for the crayons to draw on. That was pretty cool. This is a wonderful book, and I was happy to review it. “Red” is a nice crayon who you care for. There is some humor in the story, because the reader instantly knows that Red is blue. This is a nice book for diversity teaching. *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

Red is the story of a mislabeled crayon, whose blue stem is cove
Red is the story of a mislabeled crayon, whose blue stem is covered by a red paper wrapper. Told from the perspective of a pencil, his other crayon family members or crayon friends are puzzled and cannot see beyond his factory label. He tries to draw strawberries, cherries and other red objects, but nothing comes out right. His new friend challenges Red to make a new attempt at a blue sea. Finally, Red meets with success. The reader can sense the frustration of being misunderstood. One wants to cheer when Red finds his true talent.
