HASH(0xa7364558) out of 5 stars THIS IS A FABULOUS BOOK TO READ OUT LOUD Dec 2 1998
By Dorothea Dickey (bluejaydk@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Turtleback
I adored this book when I was a kid (some 30 years ago) and since then I have read it out loud to lots of kids -- including groups in hospitals and at libraries. They always love it -- expecially the age 3 to 5 crowd. The illustrations are very simple, but really appealing to kids. It's also a terrific book for beginning readers since the vocabulary is pretty simple.

HASH(0xa7364960) out of 5 stars OK but not as good as original Harold and purple crayon Oct. 27 2009
By Layla May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 3 year old wanted to read it right away when she saw the cover as she liked the original so much.

However, it is not as good as the original. Something missing...
HASH(0xa7364768) out of 5 stars We like it. May 6 2007

My two year old enjoys Harold and I just love how imaginative Harold is. I hope the stories encourage my child to think big too. This story is not read in our house quite as often as the original Harold or Harold's Trip to the Sky.

My son asks for his "crayon!" books again and again. For good reason! They are an easy read with lots of imaginative scenes. We will be buying the missing Harold books and complete our collection.

Cute book. Great addition to our collection of Harold books. The little one really enjoys this collection of books. Glad we came across them again. I remember them when I was a child.
