Color Problems

While waiting for our eat-all-you-can buffet turn during our anniversary date, Tobi and I took turns strolling Liam around the mall so the little boy won’t get bored. As I took my turn to roam around alone, I found this interesting read at Fully Booked. It’s called “The Day Crayons Quit.”


It was really fun to read that I almost bought it, only that I belatedly realized… I didn’t bring my wallet!

The children’s book has got humour that would make an adult (like me) smile. It talks about the “hugots” of every color and it’s indeed successful in sort of humanizing crayons by voicing out their so-called “feelings.” 😊

Beige, for one, complains about being called Light Brown or Dark Tan. Haha! Saying, “I’m neither!”, it got me at “BEIGE and PROUD”.

Anyways, I don’t want to spoil it in case you want to get the book.

Since Valentines is a few days away, I’m sharing Red’s hugot. (See photo above.)

And because I’m too inspired by these dramatic cray-crays… I’m thinking of having a coloring activity for Liam’s upcoming birthday bash! Hmmm… What do you think? 😉

The Day Crayons Quit is a children’s book by Drew Daywalt illustrated by Oliver Jeffers.

  1. Haha, very funny. My daughter can’t read yet but I’ll definitely share Red’s hugot to her, baka nga lang di na gamitin ang red crayon after knowing Red is tired na, hahahaha!

  2. I love Red’s hugot lines, and same with Beige’s. Will definitely look for this book when I visit National Bookstore or Powerbooks. Yes, there’s even a Fully Booked at Trinoma. Great! thanks for this.
