Not just a children's book: It's an Everyone book.

Younger children might enjoy this, but older children & adults will find this book to be filled with fun humor and a positive message.

Great, creative way to look at colors!

I didn't know the author before this, but the illustrator (Oliver Jeffers) is one of our favorite author/illustrators. There is humor, originality, and creativity in how the crayons see themselves being used. My 5 y.o. and two 9 y.o. kids all enjoyed it.
