It's true your audience will likely yell "YUCK" and pinch their noses in disgust but they'll nonetheless be intrigued and inspired to create a real compost pile. The book's text is poetic and catchy and easy to enjoy. The recipe for compost is understandable and quiet universal. It provides a fun introduction to the idea of compost gardening and caring for the earth by utilizing one's waste. Use this book to begin a composting project at your own school. ( )
