Why oh why would markers cry?
Markers can help to draw pictures so incredibly bright,
The children see their drawings and their eyes alight!
What if the markers’ colours aren’t bright anymore?
What if the markers become washed out, dull, a bore?
What is it that makes the markers cry?
Just open this book to discover why!

    Great book for my 3 year old, he really enjoyed it. It reminds me a bit of How the Crayons Saved the Rainbow, which is one of the favorites in my house.
