A good introduction to what it is and why it's important. ( )

I think that this is a great book to read to children to teach them about recycling. Recycling is such an important part of taking care of the environment and all children should be educated about it. This story is about a group of bugs living in an empty lot and rats move in and take over. A group of volunteers come to the lot to clean it up, and the bugs get their home back. The volunteers end up teaching the bugs about recycling, composting, and how to take care of the trash. This book also provides facts about littering, trash, and recycling. As a class activity, the class could make their own compost out of their trash. ( )

This book would be good to start off a lesson on recycling. It will get your students interested and wanting to know more. It also shows them simple things that they, as kids, can do to help the Earth. ( )

If you want to teach kids more about recycling you should consider reading this book to them! The book is filled with factual side notes, along with a cute story about insects that need their lot cleaned up because rats were starting to take over. In the back is a list of things that can also be recycled, like toys. ( )

Recycling Day is about volunteers coming together to help clean out an old empty lot in their neighborhood, and is told through the perspective of a group of bugs that are bullied by some not-so-nice rats. I really liked the layout out of this book. First off, I noticed that this book could be used for a few age groups. The story is told in simple, easy-to-read sentences with colorful (and diverse!) accompanying pictures. On the other hand, once the volunteers get into the recycling, there are boxes that further explain that process of recycling and some statistical data. And, to top it off, at the end there was a page explaining what else could be recycled that wasn't mentioned in the story. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. The only thing that kept me from giving it a full 5-star rating was the fact that I wished the author had included some additional references to research for kids. Since some of the boxes are geared toward an older audience, I was hoping there would be a page with maybe some books or websites for how kids could get involved in "thinking green" themselves. ( )
