Reading in the Dark

During our walk around school on world book day, we really liked Year 3's doors which showed The Day the Crayons Quit written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers. In class this week coincidentally, we've been looking at lots of books written by Oliver Jeffers. Imogen brought in the sequel to Year 3's book - The Day the Crayons Came Home so that we could enjoy it during story time. One of the characters in the book is a glow in the dark crayon who is very scared because he's been left on his own in the cold, dark basement. His whole page is illustrated with glow in the dark pictures and writing - so we decided to test if it really did glow in the dark. Surprisingly... it did! We took turns to go into our 'dark room' and have a go at reading his letter.
