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.
It's my stop on the blog tour for The Happy Hedgerow by Elena Mannion & Erin Brown and I have five hedgerow facts to share thanks to Pikku Publishing.
The Secret Life of Bees by Moira Butterfield and Vivian Mineker is a beautifully illustrated, magical guide that will leave you buzzing about bees. We loved the delightful mix of facts, natural history, and fantasy.
three exceptional picture books that all feature a child and their grandfather as well as celebrating nature. While they share these themes, all three are unique. Finn's Garden Friends includes facts about protecting wildlife, Grandpa's Gift is about finding beauty in cities and If All the World Were… is a moving story about losing a grandparent and cherishing memories.
This gorgeous guide to spring is bubbling with energy and excitement for the new life nature brings in Spring.
