     Red : A Crayon’s Story
by Michael Hall

      Meet Red, a blue crayon covered in a bright red wrapper labeled (as expected) Red. Everyone expects him to behave red, whether it is to draw strawberries or hang out with yellow to make a “nice orange”. He tries, he really tries, but he just can’t. Because he’s not Red, he’s Blue. Skies and oceans are his thing. With help from a new friend he is able to realize his true color and find happiness in his own wrapper.

I love this book because it can be read on so many different levels. At its most basic it is just plain funny. But it is also a story of perseverance, friendship, acceptance and being true to yourself. -Nancy
