Item description for The Crayon Box that Talked by Shane Derolf & Michael Letzig...

Hearing a chatty box of crayons gabbing on a shelf in a toy store, a passerby gets an important lesson in harmony as the multicolored cast of characters express the joys of having such a wonderful mix of friends in this charming retelling of a classic poem that became the theme for the Ad Council's 1997 National Anti-Discrimination Campaign for Children. Reissue.

Publishers Description
""While walking through a toy store, the day before today, I overheard a crayon box with many things to say..." "Once upon a time, Shane DeRolf wrote a poem. It was a deceptively simple poem, a charming little piece that celebrates the creation of harmony through diversity. The folks at the Ad Council heard it--and liked it so much that they made it the theme for their 1997 National Anti-Discrimination Campaign for Children. Following on the heels of nearly a year's worth of televised public service announcements, Random House is phonored to publish the picture book, illustrated in every color in the crayon box by dazzling newcomer Michael Letzig and conveying the sublimely simple message that when we all work together, the results are much more interesting and colorful.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Crayon Box that Talked?

Love it!  Apr 22, 2008
I first received this book as a gift from my daughters daycare teacher. We read it every night for years. When I came across it again on this site, I had to purchase it. Great story and morals - but we love it for the bright colors, catchy phrasing, and of course the memories behind the book. Great price and love the hardback book (as our original was paperback).
extremely cute  Feb 28, 2008
This is a great book that my daughter's preschool actually turned into a short play done by the parents. It was too cute. We still read it regularly 2 years later.
THe Crayon Box  Sep 30, 2007
A very simple book that demonstrates how we must all get along and accept each other because together we make a better world.
Fun idea!   Jan 4, 2007
This is a well written book about a very cute idea. My daughter (2 1/2) loves it.
The Crayon Box That Talked  Sep 1, 2006
