National Crayon Day

31 Mar National Crayon Day

To celebrate National Crayon Day, Crayola is retiring the color dandelion. Learn more about Dan D.’s retirement tour on Crayola’s website. Dandelion will be replaced with a shade in the blue family, and fans can help select the name of the color this summer. So, in honor of dandelion’s retirement, here are some of my favorite children’s books that feature crayons and color. Click on the title to reserve a copy at your library location!
