Praise for The Crayons Go Back to School:
"A...congenial matriculant in publishing’s autumnal rite of back-to-school offerings." –Kirkus Reviews
"In this illustration- and dialogue-driven story, Daywalt’s simple, one-sentence pages are expanded upon with playful crayon written dialogue and Jeffers’s beloved signature gouache, ink, colored pencil, and crayon illustrations. [L]ibraries will not want to quit expanding their collections of Daywalt titles with this bite-sized back-to-school send-off." –School Library Journal
