Hi! Welcome to my Bookshop page. I'm Natascha Biebow, children's author, editor and mentor. My favourite crayon color is periwinkle blue because it makes my heart sing. I love to get kids fired up about true stories, using their imaginations and believing in themselves as future inventors and creators. Binney's story is a great springboard for exploring nature, color and getting creative.

Free resources including read-aloud, podcast, activities, educators' guide with curriculum links, craft tips and more on my website. Virtual visits and online non-fiction workshops are a great way for me to share the fascinating story of the invention of Crayola crayons, ideas for research and author journey with children in Y2-6. Interested in a virtual author visit or workshop on researching and writing true stories? Please reach out to me.
