1. The Day the Crayons Came Home, by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers
A hysterical book (the sequel to The Day the Crayons Quit) about the crayons that have been tossed aside and forgotten over the years, and how a little boy made them all feel appreciated and welcome to come back home. It’s funny, it’s cute, it’s fun to read and beautiful to look at. And above all, it teaches kids to appreciate what they have and how to make all crayons of all colors feel like they count.
