Most teachers love school supplies. The promise held by a newly sharpened pencil, a just-opened pack of construction paper, or a box of crayons with none broken (not to mention that amazing new crayon smell) is universal. So many possibilities!
When Pencil Met Eraser (Imprint) celebrates school supplies, friendship, and the power of working together. You can win it by answering this question: What’s your favorite school supply? Comments for our random drawing are due by Thursday, August 22. (Update: Congratulations to Kelly, our lucky winner!) Good luck!

My favorite school supply is a pen with purple ink. The tip can’t be too fine or else I’ll gouge my paper, and the ink needs to flow smoothly. That’s perfection!
