I love the concept of this book. The boy is playing with crayons and discovers new things about coloring. When he breaks the crayons, he realizes he can use the pieces in different ways. He also discovers that blending certain colors makes new colors.
The illustrations are magnificent. Petričić uses crayon to draw us in to the little boy’s world and also teach us about color.
The words parallel his exploration beautifully. However, I felt the ending was a little lazy.
This would be a good book to initiate discussion about crayons and colors and exploration in art.
