Time Out

 

 

I’m leaving today for a week-end get-a-way with my sister, driving to Kansas to visit my brother and his wonderful family. The hubs are staying home. Mine will be babysitting Henry, our 21 month old black ShihTzu who is a holy terror! Anna’s hub will be relaxing with their 12 year yellow Lab. Can’t wait to get on the road!

Below are  a couple of pictures of Henry.

Until next week.

 

The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and illustrations by Oliver Jeffers

Book Description

Published: June 27, 2013

Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: We quit!


Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Blue needs a break from coloring all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.

What is Duncan to do? Debut author Drew Daywalt and New York Timesbestseller Oliver Jeffers create a colorful solution in this playful, imaginative story that will have children laughing and playing with their crayons in a whole new way.

Review –

Although this is a fun book and little children won’t really know the difference but the ending left a lot hanging. What was their response to Duncan’s answer to their letters and what about Beige-he had no clothes and Blue was a mere stump of his former self. Were they happy with Duncan’s answer to the problem. Cute for the young child. illustrations were great.
