Happy National Crayon Day 2022! What child doesn't love to hold a crayon in their hands? But children didn't always have such magical boxes of crayons allowing them to draw in colour... I’m delighted to be sharing an inspiring hands-on guest post from Natascha Biebow, author of The Crayon Man, illustrated by Steven Salerno. This gloriously illustrated picture book biography tells the inspiring story of Edwin Binney, the inventor of one of the world's most beloved toys.
Mother's Day is a day I cherish every year. I am the very proud mummy of two wonderful girls, and my own mum who passed away some time ago, is my inspiration in life.

I am delighted to be part of the blog tour for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups Children’s Book Award, the only book award voted for entirely by children! I am showcasing a picture book by one of my favourite picture book creators, Nadia Shireen. Barbara Throws a Wobbler is a brilliantly funny and sensitive way to understand and deal with tantrums.
