Very cute story . But it should not have been done in crayon or cursive as little ones will not be able to read without an adult reading it to them .
But all in all a cute story , definitely one to be shared with an adult reading to the child. Does make you chuckle at times .

I was extremely disappointed with this book especially since it was on the best seller list. Talking crayons is a cute concept, but the book simply does not deliver. It is also NOT written with children and young readers in mind. The story is mostly written in crayon which makes it very hard to read. Some of the crayon is done in cursive. Young readers cannot yet read cursive. Some of the colors of the writing were not dark enough to see clearly.
Although the concept of having a child's drawings as illustration is cute, the layout is poor. I was not even interested in looking at the pictures because I was too busy getting bogged down in the letters from the crayons.
Would children like this as a read-aloud? I don't think so. The concepts are too mature for children below reading age. There are even idioms used and phrases these kids simply don't know yet.
Overall, I did not like this book as it does not seem to appeal to any age group.
Would I recommend it? NO. Not appropriately written for any age group.

My favourite part is the naked peach crayon because he was naked. It made me laugh.

This book will make anyone laugh out loud. An imaginative way to think about crayons.

The Day the Crayons Quit is a most imaginative book in terms of its story and its artwork. One day while looking in his crayon box, Duncan finds a stack of scrawled messages instead of crayons.

One by one we read each color's reason for going on strike, written in its color. Red feels totally overworked. Purple is tired of contributing to messy pictures. Yellow and Orange cannot agree on who deserves to be the color of the sun. This is a young artist's worst nightmare.
