The Crayon

The Crayon: A Colorful Tale about Friendship
By Simon Rickerty
Aladdin, 2014. unpaged picture book

Blue and Red are engaging in some friendly sparring when things get out of hand.  Feelings are hurt, and Blue finds a new friend in Purple.  Red watches sadly as Blue and Purple play together.  Will they ever forgive Red?  It is amazing how much Rickerty can communicate with simple illustrations and just 50 words.  The gentle message about friendship coupled with a fun introduction to colors makes a great preschool read aloud.
