    Recycling is Fun with Rickie

    With humorous antics in the illustrations, Rickie the Raccoon Learns About Recycling is an enjoyable story that helps young children learn how they can help to recycle in their homes and schools. Rickie is a hungry young raccoon who, one evening, searches for food in garbage cans. Instead he is startled and knocks over a big green bin. Clatter, clunk, crash out comes its contents. What is Rickie to do with such a mess? His friend Carmen the Cat comes out to help him. Will you be able to help Rickie read the symbols on the side of each bin? Author Giovanna Lagana writes with passion about recycling through her characters Rickie and Carmen. She is able to stretch the young child's vocabulary, comprehension, and willingness about how he can contribute to recycling. The colored pencil illustrations by Angela are amazing in their depth, detail, and texture as they enhance the text. They make one want to reach out and stroke the cat and raccoon. The pictures will help parents and teachers encourage children to make their own colored pencil drawings. Teachers and parents will also find this an inspiring book for their children with its suggested tips and directions for further research and activities, and it is highly recommended for young children, ages 3 - 10.

    An Invaluable Eco-Friendly Teaching Tool

    On his nightly forage for food, Rickie the Raccoon is making his way down a dark alley when a curious dog suddenly barks and startles him. In his shocked surprise, he knocks over a series of bins containing glass, bottles, cans, and paper. Unsure of how to clean up the mess, Rickie is soon joined by his best friend, Carmen the Cat, who not only shows him the correct places to put all the items but also teaches him some invaluable lessons about recycling along the way.

    A short - but nonetheless informative - read, Rickie The Raccoon Learns About Recycling is an invaluable teaching tool for introducing young readers to the importance of recycling, as well as engaging in environmentally-friendly behavior. Effectively complemented with vivid, detailed illustrations, the insightful new offering from authors Giovanna Lagana and Angela Cater serves as a comprehensive resource guide, complete with a host of helpful tips for eco-friendly living, as well as a plethora of websites, books, and activities designed to foster a deeper appreciation for the responsibility we all must take in playing our part to create a healthier world.

    Ostensibly geared toward a younger audience, Rickie The Raccoon Learns About Recycling will no doubt enlighten many a soul - young and old alike - about the global impact of the seemingly harmless choices we make in our everyday lives. A highly recommended read.
