How Is a Crayon Made

Author: Oz Charles

First line: It's hard to imagine a world without crayons.

Why you should read this book: Venture inside the Crayola factory for a firsthand glimpse of the crayon creation process, from pigmentation to wrapping. Children will enjoy the colorful photographs of various machines, including the "crayon eater" that tests a crayon's strength. A nice overview for young children with curiosity about the world around them.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're strictly into black ink.
