This book gives a lot of useful info on recycling and why it is important to recycle. I like it how it gives realistic and very visual facts, like how it takes 3,000 years just for a glass bottle to decompose. When you think about this, you realize the importance of recycling. I would use this for Earth Day, or I would combine this book for a lesson involving landfills or how materials are decomposed in the earth. It is importance that students know the importance of conserving the planet, for we only have one. Global warming is causing more and more natural disasters, and it is time we take to educate our future society on improving our planet.
Great for teaching kids the importance of protecting our society.
