Wax to Crayon

by Julie Murray

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
Open a new box of crayons and the familiar smell of wax and paper will bring back memories of hours of coloring and drawing. This addition to the "Beginning to End" series focuses on a very familiar object to children and adults alike and takes them on a journey to a crayon factory. In simple text and vivid photographs, Murray explains how crayons begin as wax and pigment and are transformed into a box of colors on a store's shelves. The process is explained step-by-step, showing how both machines and humans are a part of the experience. Sections entitled "Fun Facts" and "Can You Guess?" provide playful trivia and add an opportunity for interaction with the text. Important vocabulary words are highlighted in the body text and defined in a short glossary. Geared towards the younger reader, Wax to Crayon provides an excellent springboard for discussing the work of factories by exploring an object that many children will recognize.
