A boxful of brand-new crayons is excited to begin a new adventure when a boy named Lucas brings them home and starts using them to make pictures. Except that Lucas never ever uses the white crayon for any of his drawings. And when he decides he needs a new set of crayons, that crayon is still just as tall and just as clean as the day it was bought. Poor white crayon feels so dejected!
But when a girl named Olivia stumbles upon the unused crayon, she’s delighted. She draws her own kinds of pictures, and that white crayon is exactly what she needs. one boy’s trash is another girls’ treasure…..Here’s a funny, heart-warming story that not only shows how things can be used in different ways, but also reinforces the lesson that everyone feels good when they have a chance to participate.
