Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Cohn uses captivating, easy-to-understand language to explore animal migration. Each entry introduces a different animal's habitat and eating, hibernating, and breeding behaviors. Children will enjoy the passages on well-known creatures, such as snakes and salamanders, in addition to those on the lesser-known chimney swifts. The section on salamanders is reminiscent of Sarah Marwil Lamstein's Big Night for Salamanders (Boyds Mills, 2010). Detwiler's vibrant, full-page illustrations bring Cohn's text to life, placing kids in the center of each environment. Written in clear, lively prose, Nature Recycles is an ideal book to introduce recycling. By showcasing the various methods animals use to repurpose materials in their natural habitats, Lord provides examples of recycling that will inspire youngsters to creatively reuse their own objects. For example, readers learn that poison dart frogs reuse bromeliad plant leaves and nut pods from the rainforest as cradles for their young. Morrison's full-page illustrations are bright and appealing, with accurate depictions of the ingenious ways creatures use found materials. Back matter offers downloadable activities, questions, trivia, and lists of facts. Wonderful additions to public or school libraries.—Anne Barreca, New York Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
Reuse and recycling happen throughout the natural world; you should do it, too. Spread by spread, a collection of curious animal behaviors and the endless loop of the water cycle are offered as examples of recycling in the natural world. From a decorator sea urchin, protected by his collection of ocean refuse, to an Asian elephant's meal of the banana leaf she first used as a fan, the text and slightly cartoony illustrations offer varied images of adaptive reuse. The animals are treated as individuals with intention. "Hermit crab helps keep the earth beautiful too." A quiz in the end matter makes the point explicit: Animals "recycle for nests or shelters, camouflage or protection, as tools, or as nutrients." Some may find this definition of recycling far-fetched and irresponsibly anthropomorphic, but the wide-ranging examples are intriguing. An elf owl makes its nest in an old woodpecker hole in a Sonoran Desert cactus. In the Indian Ocean, a veined octopus carries empty coconut halves to use as an emergency hiding place. In Africa, a dung beetle feeds its hatchlings "rhino poop." The final page shows a diverse group of young humans washing a bicycle with rags from outgrown clothes. "I recycle. How about you?" But why humans should do this is not explained. Well-meant but not convincing. (Informational picture book. 5-9)
