It's no use crying over broken crayons

Snap! - Hazel Hutchins, Dusan Petricic

Tenacious Evan turns a broken crayon into a colorful world of whimsy.  The illustrations full of color, texture, and childhood freedom truly make the book.  A great discussion starter for the concept primary colors and color mixing. 


All readers will appreciate Evan's optimism in finding the bright side of a  broken crayon.  However, this book only receives three stars as the plot loses focus at the end.  While it is clear that Evan could use his three primary color crayons to create the world of his imagination, this point became quite muddled through a handful of rambling pages.
