Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this small, lift-the-flap board book in the Little Green Books series, a pig-tailed girl, clad in a red superhero-like cape, invites kids to reuse things rather than discard them. Each spread features an object and a suggestion for its reuse, which is revealed with a lift of a flap: “Do you see that old jar? Don’t throw that away! You can turn it into . . . a new vase!” Other suggestions include turning plastic jug into bird feeders, used cans into instruments, parents’ old clothes into costumes, and a box into a toy car. The book itself is made of “100% recycled material,” and the cheerful color illustrations appear muted against the matte, brown-bag-colored backgrounds of the pages. Though the title mentions recycling, the focus here is really on repurposing, although the suggestions don’t provide specific how-to’s. Nonetheless, kids will likely understand the simply related message, revealed in a playful, interactive format, and they may also find some creative inspiration from the narrator’s ideas. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Shelle Rosenfeld

This board book is not exactly like those regular board books. The pages are thinner, to be exact, the pages feel like cardboard from your cereal box. And the books feel like pictures printed on cardboard. But I am glad that it is eco friendly and that it is printed with vegetable ink, I feel safe with my baby constantly wanting to chew on this when I am reading it to her. The flip open feature on in the book is really flimsy though, because it is so thin it rips easily.

Great book! I used it for a preschool class when I was teaching about recycling and using recyclable materials to turn it into something new and different. Students loved it!
