Harold and the Purple Crayon

Harold and the Purple Crayon, by Crockett Johnson

This is a delightful story that will encorage your preschooler to use his imagination. Harold begins with a purple crayon and draws his surroundings as he builds the story. Starting with a moon, Harold continues his imaginative and enchanting adventure by falling in the ocean, climbing a mountain, riding in a hot air ballon, and much , much more. After reading the story, try asking your preschooler to draw his own adventure (with a little help, if needed). It is guaranteed to get his creative juices flowing!
