Harold and The Purple Crayon


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.

Genre: Fantasy

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?
