DAN D.’S RETIREMENT SPEECH
The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home by Drew Daywalt are two of my (relatively) new favorite children’s books. Crayons became characters for me, so when I heard about the news that Crayola was going to retire the color Dandelion after 27 years, I got curious and wanted to know more. I also thoroughly enjoyed Dan D.’s retirement speech.

We can all even follow his post retirement travel adventure! Check #CelebrateDandelion on Instagram for his four-week retirement tour.
Plus there’s more news from Crayola, they will introduce a new color that will come from the blue family. They will ask their fans to name their new color this summer (feels like putting a title to your piece). You can start thinking of ideas!
