Resource Description

A true story, “The Crayon Man” is a picture-book biography about Edwin Binney and how his love for colours in nature and his desire to put these in the hands of young children resulted in the conception and creation of Crayola crayons. Although particularly suitable as a read-aloud for students in Grade K–4, readers of all ages and levels can relate to the topic of these popular crayons and to the process of creating something. The book’s colourful drawings, paired with relevant facts highlighting the historical time period, can spark discussions about the invention of everyday objects. Log in to read the full review.
