The Art Lesson and New Crayons

I love Tomie dePaola's The Art Lesson .  It's such a fantastic autobiographical children's book.  My kids got so excited after reading this book the other night.  One of the things that most excited them was crayons!  The next day I went out and bought them a brand new set (you see, I realized that since we have two big tubs full of used crayons I really hadn't ever gotten them a new BIG set with all the different and fantastic colors… it was past time for that).

Watching them sort through and read the names was the best kind of fun!  It reminded me of myself as a kid.  There's nothing like a brand new set of crayons.  It's the small things in life, it really is.
