One day Amy spots her teacher, Mr Jones, putting a box of bottles and newspapers outside of his house. He explains that he's leaving them to be taken away to be recycled. He tells his class at school about it and takes them to a recycling plant to show them how it works, what sort of things they can recycle and to explain why it's important.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book with a really important message 17 Oct 2007
The book is written in a really friendly way and is designed to engage with younger readers. It's the kind of book we should all read to our kids - books like this, and newer ones like yucketypoo are pitched at the right level to engage and explain important issues. We loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recycling is Great Fun 30 Mar 2007
By Pamela J. Mikkleson - Published on
I taught a lesson using this book and it worked great. I got a lot of positive response from the children on recycling. We started a recycling center in our classroom and it is working great. I have received feedback from the parents as well that they have started their own recycling at home since we started this unit in our classroom. A lot of positive things have come from the use of this book with our unit.

3.0 out of 5 stars For older children 14 May 2009
By W. Jacobs - Published on
This book is well-written and explains why we should recycle in a creative way. However, it does not rhyme and therefore gets a little dull to read. It is long and not very exciting. More suitable for kids over 8 or 9.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 18 Nov 2008
By Yuzuky Ramirez - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've just recently bought all of the Jan Green Why Should I? series and they are great! The books are easy to read for the little ones, not too much text is good, it goes right to the point, and that makes it easy for the children to understand. The illustrations are wonderfully colorful and will catch the children's attention in a heartbeat. Not only are they cute books, but they send out a great message, children need to know how to protect our Earth from a really early age and Jan Green did a splendid job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Recycle knowledge for young children. 21 Mar 2010
By Tina R. Durham-woehler - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book to a group of 3-5 year old children. They were able to follow the storyline and relate to things they could do to keep their environment clean. This falls right in line with any earth day activities or classroom emphasis you may be planning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for Earth Day & teaching kids about recycling! 21 July 2010
By Beth S. - Published on
We purchased this book to help teach our kids about Earth Day and why it's important to recycle! Our boys (ages 2 & 4) loved the pictures and were inspired to help us collect the newspapers, bottles, and cans after reading!
