Read this with a class and was truly happy with the resulting reaction. Nicely written. Well done. ( )

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. ( )

In rhyming poetry, this book provides a recipe for recycling materials to create compost. There is an additional page that informs the reader what not to put in the compost. ( )

Teaches the process of composting using items from every letter of the alphabet. The perfect introduction to a class project on creating a compost. It could also be used to discuss recycling. ( )

The roll-off-your-tongue rhymes and delightful illustrations in this book explain how to turn icky leftovers, scraps, and even hair trimmings into fertile soil -- all in your own backyard! The compost instruction leads to an interesting hands-on lesson for living a healthier, more eco-friendly life as an on-going lesson of science skills such as observation, inferencing, and measurement.
