Bibliographic Information: Johnson, C. (1955). Harold and the purple crayon. New York: Harper & Row.
Brief Annotation: This is the story of a young boy named Harold who uses his imagination and a purple crayon to create his own world.
Grade Level: K-3
Readers who will like this: Children who love adventures and using their imagination; Children who like to draw
Rating/Response: 5. I think this would be a great book to do with an art lesson. Students could pick one color crayon and create their own world and also write a story to go along with it. I think kids would really enjoy this!
One question you would ask before a read aloud: Have you ever wanted to create your own imaginary world?
