This lively and informative handbook explains the process of recycling from start to finish. The book focuses on 5 different types of rubbish - paper, glass, aluminium cans, plastic and polystyrene.
Grade 2-4. An eminently readable and well-organized offering that's filled with information. Gibbons's cartoons in primary shapes and colors graphically illustrate the contents of a landfill and how to recycle various products to cut down on the need for landfills for which space is already in short supply. Discussing paper, plastic, glass, cans, and polystyrene, the author describes how to recycle, why it's necessary, and its benefits. The top two-thirds of each page is devoted to illustrations that perfectly complement the brief text below. The book ends with a mention of the ozone layer and the limited potential for recycling polystyrene, followed by 14 facts about garbage. The plea is to make our planet a safer and healthier place to live with a habit that is fun and easy recycling.Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
