Gr 4-8-This excellent guide should be on every library shelf. It urges children to do their share to save the Earth's resources by following the ``Three R's''- reducing, reusing, recycling-and makes common-sense suggestions that are fairly easy to follow. Readers learn what garbage can be recycled, how to reuse things around the house, how to be a wise shopper, and more. Black-and-white sketches illustrate the text. A follow-up to 50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth (Andrews & McMeel, 1990), this book should appeal to the same wide audience. A valuable resource for both reports and classroom discussion.-Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY
