It can be hard for young children to see how they can make a difference, but each of the ideas Minna's family does is something young children can see and understand. After reading I had the students raise their hands if these are things their families already do. Lots of them hand their old clothes down to a friend or family member, use reusable bags and recycle cans and bottles. Last summer my family started composting. My children love to take kitchen scraps to the compost bin. During the winter I didn't take a lot out there, but now that it is warming up I can't wait to get started again.
On Monday the whole family "looked through their closets and dressers," picking out things they no longer used. Off to the Community Clothing Bank they went. No, that wasn't want Minna wanted. "I'm still thinking," she declared. Tuesday they cleaned up the yard and "put all the leaves and weeds into ... the compost maker. " No, that wasn't what Minna wanted. "I'm still thinking." On Wednesday they returned cans, Thursday they used their tote bags, and Friday they brought gently used books to the library. Mmmmm! Just what kind of recycling project would Minna use on her poster?
This is a nice look about bunny Minna's family and how they recycled. Of course there are many different ways that people recycle and young children are now becoming more aware of them. There are units in school and libraries have mini-programs and projects for young children to participate in. The artwork is adorable and, naturally, the collage is made of recycled materials. In the back of the book is a Recycle Game, a Really Recycle Activity, and a challenge for readers to find the assortment of materials the author used to create her collage. This book would be a perfect one to use to introduce a unit or project to young students learning about recycling in the homeschool or classroom setting.
There's more to this book aside from the impressively creative collages that illustrate its pages. It includes a recycle game in the back and photos of recycled materials for children to go back through the book to find. These activities should effectively keep my daughter interested in the book long past re-reading it for the story (which she has already done twice-she really likes this book!).
Both the days of the week and the names of all twelve months are included in the text (calendar pages are also printed in the inside front and back). It is helpful that the "three R's" of recycling (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) are clearly defined at the end of the book under "Author's Note."
Great book-looking forward to future titles by this author.
