A small boy, with his magic purple crayon, draws himself in and out of a series of adventures. He draws what he desires, finds himself in difficulty, and then he draws his way out. The power of perseverance and creativity is a major theme in this animated tale. Based on the book by Crockett Johnson.
I paired Harold's Fairy Tale with a read aloud of Harold and the Purple Crayon to Kindergartners. I love offering literature in different modalities to serve my different learners, and the children enjoyed both stories very much.
