Winner, Mom's Choice Silver Award

After their dog Bubbles chases after the recycling truck, Tiana and her family set off on a search to the Materials Recovery Facility, learning about recycling along the way. Exploring the MRF on their adventure, they see how papers, plastics, metals, and glass are collected, sorted, and baled, and then sent to be made into new products. Based on facts about the process of recycling in industrial countries, this book will help children understand the importance of recycling to save natural resources, as well as how they can take action in their own communities.

This is a fun read for parents and their children. My son and I finished it last night. The story line is easy read and the sidebars have helpful additional information. My son liked the colorful illustrations and the story line of chasing a dog through town. We enjoyed the story together and as a parent I liked the bit of education that was slipped in without him evening knowing. He and I highly recommend this book for both entertainment and education.

I liked the book with the facts about all you do to recycle. The pictures were really nice and I could read and understand all that was going on. This is a good book and I want to take to school and share with my teacher and the other students. Endia Cloud age 9 I liked the pictures and the story about the dog Bubbles who ran after the truck. I saw how they sorted all the stuff we take to our recycle place. Really good book. Madison Cloud, age 6 This is an outstanding book for young people to grasp hold to the value of recycle, reuse and reduce policies. This is a fun and educational book that keeps your interest. I find the book well written, the illustrations well-done and the storyline practical and up to date. I will use this with our youth group for further educating them on protecting our environment.

Where Do Recyclable Materials Go? Is one of the most clever and thought provoking book for children. While the book has a fun storyline and added commentary by the characters in the book it also has an important message for children and adults alike. With its how-to, its understanding recycling resources, money saving ideas, and the hands-on practical exercises it's a sure win in every child's home. by Kelly Ann Evers Author of Hurt No More!

Where Do Recyclable Materials Go? is a great book to share with children. The story leads Tiana, Peter, and their mother throughout the community searching for their dog, Bubbles, who likes to chase recycling trucks. On their journey they stop at various places and discover information about recycling. Once they find Bubbles at the Recycling Facility, they are given a tour of how the recycled materials are sorted and sent out. The author's use of a magnifying glass throughout the book showcases various interesting facts about recycling. This is a book worth reading several times. I believe even adults will be surprised about how much we waste and how easy it would be to recycle. Where Do Recyclable Materials Go? should be part of all home, school, and community libraries. The questions, activities, and facts at the end of the book re-enforce the many ways we can help our communities and our world. A great read for all! Jenny Stees, Elementary School Teacher

This is a fun read, packed with information. The story line is an easy read, but the sidebars are a bonus. These factoids are packed with additional information that would enable a teacher or program director to flesh out a day long discussion/activity about recycling. If you have a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) in your area that allows tours, this would be a great way to prepare the students for the tour. I plan on suggesting this book to several local eco groups in our area, as a basis for their outreach programs.

This book reminded me of the old Magic School Bus books in the way it was written and the illustrations. The family in this book is trying to find their dog who has followed the Recycling truck. In the process of looking for their dog they learn about what can be recycled and where materials go after they are collected. The take a tour of a recycling center and learn how materials are sorted and what they are used for. This is an educational book and I learned a few things I didn't know. Too bad we don't have a local Recycling Center, I'm sure it would make a fun field trip for kids.
