The Crayon Box that Talked is a sweet story about a box of crayons that just can't get along! Red doesn't like blue, and green doesn't like yellow! No one knows why; they are just different. However, throughout the story, the crayons learn that together they can make beautiful pictures. This would be a great story to use on the first day to discuss diversity and to enhance a sense of classroom belonging. Everyone is important is important in my classroom, and the picture isn't complete when one of my friends is missing! This book is appropriate for K-3 grades.
