Review: Children's Broken Crayons Still Color

        Broken Crayons Still Color children's picture book is perfect for ages 4-8. The text is organized into simple paragraphs which can be read by the child or parent. This organization is perfect for this age group.

        The authors, Shelley Hitz and Jennifer Waddle, used imagery throughout the book. The employment of this literary tool was used to help the children understand broken crayons can still color something beautiful. Each page had a colorful page that helped reinforce what was being taught.

        The beautifully illustrated book cover helped to introduce the story by having two young girls color with broken crayons. At the end of the book are discussion questions for a parent to discuss with the child, a prayer and a verse to remember.

        I recommend this picture book to children ages 4-8 and their parents.

Broken things often work just fine. Sometimes even better than things not broken. It's our perception that counts.

Have a fabulous day, Michelle. ♥♥♥
