Summary:This book is about a family who never recycled to recycling everything they can. Walking to school some students noticed their teacher putting recycables by his curb, and they became curious. At school the teacher taught the class about recycling and why they should recycle. After that the student and his family started to recycle. They recycled from cans to food scraps. Recycling food scraps was turned into composte and used to feed the garden. They learned that recycling is good for the enviorment and saves you money.Personal Reflection:I really enjoyed this book on recycling. I think it shows great ways to recycle and can help us learn more. I like the fact that this family never recycled before and then they became great recyclers. I know we don't always want to take the time to recycle, but i think it would benefit us all.Classroom Extension:1. Have your class bring in a recycable good once a week, and then they can talk about what the good can be used for when recycled.2. Go on a nature walk and have them pick up any trash or recycables. This will teach them that cleaning up earth is part of recycling.

The book also informs children about what happens to recycled items and its benefits. This book explains to its readers that throwing items in the garbage can be harmful to our envirnoment.Personal Reaction:I like this book, because it is a great way to introduce or even persuae children/adults to start recycling. After reading this book, it refreshed my thoughts about recycling. I'm thinking about implementing recycling in my home and may influence others to do so too.Classroom Extension:1. I would have a class discussion about the values of recycling.2. I would make a class chart, to see what students use recycling in their homes. Then, I would have each student make their own individual brouchure about recycling and give it to their parents.

I bought this to use with my preschool students for our Earth Day unit in April. This is a fun, easy to follow story that is geared to younger kids but doesn't talk down to them the way so many of these types of books are. Even I enjoy reading it to them. I love the message it sends in a way that means something to kids. Definitely recommend this book to all kids under 7.
