Short, sweet, and to the point. This will make kiddos giggle and one that parents will read multiple times in one sitting. The repetitiveness will be useful for early readers. A fun return of the crayons that children will love!

From the creators of The Day The Crayons Quit and The Day The Crayons Came Home, comes a new title that features the same band of loveable crayons with a simple story about love.

Love From The Crayons is not as detailed or complex a story as the first two books. Rather, it is a simple book, with one line of text per page that follows the same pattern “Love is brown...because sometimes love stinks”, starring the ironic crayons and matching crayon drawings.

It’s a great book for young fans of the

I didn't think that today my mind would be blown by a picture book about crayons. Yet here I am, emotionally moved by these simple messages about the many forms of crayon affection. Starting with a traditional red heart "Love comes in all shapes and sizes" to a charming "sunny and warm" there is quite the gamut depicted.

Recommended for children, adults, and more.

Some of the lines are cute; some of them don't make sense. Either way, it's an innocuous tribute to love that cashes in on the success of the Crayons series.
Love is explained by the crayons from the crayon box. Love is all the colors one can think of.

Upon finishing the book, I checked out the author's Goodreads profile and apparently, 'Love from the Crayons' is pretty much a bonus installment to an ongoing series that is centered around the crayons. This title is a perfect gift material that could be conferred to your dear one on the V-day or any day of the year. It explores the different hues of love and it left a warm, fuzzy feeling in my heart as I flipped the final page.

Cashing in on the success of THE DAY THE CRAYONS QUIT. This one is a mediocre read aloud for Valentine’s Day.

A Crayon book is always at least a little fun. This takes pics we know (not 100% sure on that but they seem repetitive from the old books if they’re not!) and repackages them into a “Love is ...” installment. Not sure I would have purchased it having seen it first but that’s the danger of preordering. For anyone not already familiar with the Crayons it could be a fun introduction. Just don’t stop here. No little “bits” to get lost like the Christmas book.

This awesome new book by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers is a terrific new addition to the two books they've already created about crayons. This one is especially about love and what each color means about love. It's going to be a sensational mentor text because the text is simple but the ideas are really big, perfect for beginning writers. I can't wait to get this one in my library.

I would like to thank Penguin Workshop for my e-copy.

I adore the "Crayon" books and this one is no exception. This will make a great Valentine's Day gift for anyone. The Crayons go through their box of colors and describe love. Cannot wait to purchase this one!

The Crayon series (The Day the Crayons Quit, etc.) has now become a franchise. The good thing, though, is that each of the new volumes stands up to the original books. In this one, presumably a Valentine's Day-related title, the various aspects of love are mentioned, as connected to colors. For example, "Love is black...because love isn't always bright and colorful." Kids will get a kick out of the book, but there is plenty to provoke thoughts in adults, as well.

Very cute! Anyone who likes the original book (The Day the Crayons Quit) will find this book equally charming (and a bit funny as well).

Had some interesting ideas about love, not all of which made sense.

Read it. Nothing too deep but cute crayon illustrations of love in lots of colors.

Very cute and sweet, but a tiny book that will be hard to use as a read aloud in school and that is not quite as clever as the other crayon books or The Legend Of Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Love from the Crayons
by Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers

Not as hilarious as "The Day the Crayons Quit." but sweet and even poignant. Great gift book for anyone you want to share some love with!

A sweet addition to the "crayons" series. Love is many colors.

I love crayons!
Simple message covers a vast subject.

Clearly cashing in on the success of The Day the Crayons Quit . . . but I still liked it. I liked the pile of poop with fly buzzing above it on the brown page. All in all, a cute little book.

This book is so sweet! I really love the simplicity of it. The straightforwardness and the adorable illustrations. Each colour loves in their own way and is a great concept for little ones to learn!

Love From the Crayons shows how love can come from any color and how love can have different meanings.

This, this was the cutest and is absolutely my favorite. I now have a need to buy a physical copy so I can read it to my Nieces/Nephew.
