Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Minna the rabbit enters a poster contest with a recycling theme. The chosen posters will decorate a calendar. Her family helps her to brainstorm ideas as they recycle all week long. Minna is pleased with her poster and disappointed when it is not picked to represent any of the months. Happily, it is revealed to be the cover of the calendar. Recycling is encouraged without the story becoming overly didactic. The book concludes with a recycle game, an activity and a list of the recycled materials used in the illustrations. The sprightly collage rabbits are expressive as they go about their recycling activities. The end papers are particularly clever; the calendar pages are blank in the front, and the winning posters are filled in at the back. This would be a fine way to introduce this timely topic to very young children. 2003, Marshall Cavendish, Nevett
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Minna, a bunny, is excited about designing a poster for an environmental calendar. With her family, she describes how they recycle different items on each day of the week. Collage illustrations made with recycled papers reinforce the theme. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
The bunnies at Minna's school have been asked to create a poster about recycling. The best posters will be used as illustrations in the Community Recycling Calendar. Minna really wants to win, and her family has helpful suggestions. They recycle every day: Monday they take old clothes to the clothes bank; Tuesday they clean the yard and make compost; Wednesday they go to the recycling center. Every day they reuse, reduce, or recycle, but Minna doesn't decide how to make her poster until the day before the contest. Winning posters for each month are announced, and just when she's sure she hasn't won, Minna gets her wish. Wallace's (Pumpkin Day!, 2002, etc.) illustrations are her very recognizable cut-paper collages done here with found and recycled paper. The story is a vehicle for the Be Green message, but young readers won't mind. Between the seven activities Minna and her family do during the week and the posters her 12 schoolmates display, each with a recycling suggestion of its own, there are plenty of ideas youngsters can act upon to be kinder to the Earth. There's a fun recycling game (the game board is the penultimate page), a real recycling challenge for readers and their families, and, on the last page, swatches of the papers used in the illustrations with the invitation to find them in the pictures. There is more story here, but less information, than Gail Gibbons's Recycle! (1992). However, the intended audience will enjoy the extras. An excellent introduction to this increasingly important subject. (Picture book. 5-9)

    Making recycling easy for children

    This was a really age appropriate book about recycling and making a difference. I used it with my preschool class this week to talk about Earth Day and the letter "R". Minna and her class are making posters to compete in a contest for a calendar for the community. Minna takes the whole week to think about what her poster should look like. Each day her family does something to be green. They donate old or outgrown clothes, use reusable bags at the grocery store, recycle cans, donate books, compost and use plastic containers instead of plastic wrap to save left over food. At the end of the week Minna makes a poster for recycling everyday.

    It can be hard for young children to see how they can make a difference, but each of the ideas Minna's family does is something young children can see and understand. After reading I had the students raise their hands if these are things their families already do. Lots of them hand their old clothes down to a friend or family member, use reusable bags and recycle cans and bottles. Last summer my family started composting. My children love to take kitchen scraps to the compost bin. During the winter I didn't take a lot out there, but now that it is warming up I can't wait to get started again.
