Summary

Summary

How are crayons made? Clear wax is melted in a factory. Once it's melted, color is added to it, it is poured into crayon-shaped molds, cooled, and wrapped in a paper label. Sorted into sets, the brightly colored crayons are boxed and sent in trucks to stores to be sold to you.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-Clearly and simply, each title describes how a sweater or a crayon is made, beginning with how sheep are raised and how wax is manufactured. Each one opens with a concise table of contents with titles of chapters in bold print and has large print and vivid full-page color photos. These well-organized books are excellent for the information they impart and are accessible to beginning readers.-Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH (c) Copyright 2010.
