Every child loves crayons. Every child and every parent loves the fun names given to the crayons – like fuzzy wuzzy brown and razzle dazzle rose. The day
Liza’s mommy takes away her crayons for drawing on the wall is when this wonderfully written and illustrated story begins. It is about the journey she takes in discovering the colors and art of the world around her. Liza finds new ways to express her self artistically and imaginatively using nature and learns that art is everywhere.
