Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I wish I'd had this book when my class was studying trash! It's simple ideas, communicated with equally simple illustrations, are a lovely inspiration to all young environmentalists. I can imagine having students create their own version of this book., and while it is a lift-the-flap book, older children would enjoy it, too.
