I used this book in the classroom for a topic about the environment and recycling, it went down really well! I have used with children in Year 2 and Year 4/5, both enjoyed the book, used in slightly different ways.
I would recommend for any topic about recycling or showing where the raw materials actually come from.

I bought this book for my 5 year old son to teach him about the importance of recycling and why we do recycle. First of all I think it is important to mention that it is in american English which, I have to say, my son does not understand. But more to the point, I felt the message was a bit confusing. It does not tackle the importance of changing our ways and simply made recycling a happy-clappy process. On the opening page you can read 'The bulldozers got rid of all the trees, grass and rocks...' as if that was not a problem in itself!
I really feel the real issue is avoided: the way we consume and the impact it has on the environment. I would certainly not recommend this book to anyone.
