  • Local realtor donates book to elementary libraries

    It was “The Day The Crayons Quit” and the day Century 21 realtor Sandra Hubbs visited school libraries that has students talking in Knox County.

    The visit was part of the agency’s effort to give back to local schools, with the first donation being a copy of the book “The Day The Crayons Quit”, by author Drew Daywalt.  Hubbs read the story of Duncan to students, a character in the book that just wants to color.  But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking—each believes he is the true color of the sun.

    “We appreciate all of our local businesses for giving back,” said Kelly Sprinkles, superintendent.  “Our students enjoyed having Ms. Hubbs visit them and I’m sure her donation will be read by many Knox County students in the future.”

    Additional information about the book “The Day The Crayons Quit” (and the book “The Day The Crayons Came Home”) is available on the author’s website at http://www.crayonspicturebooks.com/books/.

    Century 21 Advantage Realty, A Robinson Company, is proud to serve the area and give back to local schools with offices located in London, Somerset, Danville, Richmond and Morehead, Kentucky.
