Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson

(Graded Reader)

This is yet another children's picture book in which the actual language itself is not ideal for an ESL classroom, but the illustrations in the book convey the meaning so perfectly that it is possible to use this book effectively.

I used with book with elementary young learners (mostly 8 and 9 years of age) and they enjoyed the imagination in the book.

I also supplemented the book with this Youtube video here.

Here are some supplementary teaching materials I made when teaching this book in my classes.  These materials don't really work too well independently of the actual book, so you'll need to get a copy of the book to use these.
