Imagination is the key word for this new book by Hazel Hutchins. Who doesn’t enjoy a brand new box of crayons and Evan just opened his box all shiny and new. He is coloring when Snap! his crayon breaks into two pieces. Evan isn’t upset since his one crayon turned into two crayons. What fun he can have with two crayons and when many of crayons Snap! he has doubles and even triples of different colored crayons. With crayons galore Evan continues to color and discovers that with tiny bits of crayons he can make furry spots. When some of the crayons lose their wrappers Evan tries to tape them and glue them. Without wrappers he discovers that he can crayon sideways and surprising things begin to appear. But Evan’s crayons are disappearing right before his very eyes? Does Evan get upset, no, Evan uses his imagination once again and discovers a new adventure.
What a fun book to sit and enjoy with your little ones or even in a group situation. I enjoyed reading a book about children using their imaginations to find new solutions to their problems as small as they might seem.
