The other day I received an email notice from a crafts store. The message was promoting an organization called "The Crayon Initiative." Strange name, isn't it? It's stated intention is:

Donate your unwanted crayons and we’ll recycle them into new ones.

Then we’ll donate them back to schools, hospitals, arts programs and other organizations invested in our children.

It's a recycling effort that puts trash to good use! Check out the website here, and consider donating your old crayons, or perhaps a little money.

Speaking of crayons...you may not realize it, but we have about a dozen picture books that have crayons as their subject! Here are five:

Daywalt, Drew. The Day the Crayons Quit. [JP DAY]

Hall, Michael. Frankencrayon. [JP HAL]

Hubbard, Patricia. My Crayons Talk. [JP HUB]

Johnson, Crockett. Harold and the Purple Crayon. [JP JOH]

Porto, Tony. Get Red!: An Adventure in Color. [JP POR]
