Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3The issues of landfills, incineration of garbage, pollution, composting, and curbside recycling are briefly mentioned in the text (and/or through the illustrations) to help set the stage for Follow That Trash! The sorting, packaging, and future use of glass, aluminum, plastic, and newspapers processed at a recycling plant are the focus of this book for beginning readers. The large pictures are flat and include robotlike people, but the important message of "you can make a difference" comes through. Combined with Gail Gibbons's Recycle! (Little, Brown, 1992) and Tony Hare's Recycling (Watts, 1991; o.p.), Jacobs's book will enhance classroom activities and reinforce the idea of recycling as essential for the future of the Earth.Gale W.
