My son saw the book in the table when I received the shipment and he immediately picked it up and started reading this "adventure" and was impressed that this plastic bottle became a swearter. I will use it when teaching recycling in schools because it is an engaging story.

Wonderful book about where a plastic bottle comes from, but only tells the reader where it goes if you recycle it, not if it is thrown away. I think kids should see both sides.

My four-year old son loves this book. Not only does it have cute pictures, but it is very informative. I learned a lot I did not know as an adult. My son asked to read it on 2 consecutive nights. He thought it was neat when we found out that his hand-tied synthetic fleece blankets were made from crude oil... as was the plastic bottle in the story. And, true to the theme, the book is made from 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper - yeah!

This book follows the plastic process-- from crude oil to plastic water bottle to recycled sweater. This book reads like propoganda from the plastic companies-- there is nothing environmentally friendly about a single serving plastic water bottle that pretty much immediately gets disposed of. I used this book to teach my kids exactly why we should avoid plastic--as it clearly illustrates how much time, effort and resources must go into ONE plastic bottle and they understood how ridiculous that was.

This book explains how plastics can be recycled to make other items. I have yet to read this book to a group of preschool children, but after reviewing the book I think with some explanation and props preschoolers could understand the process. This book would be completely understandable to kindergarten and first graders.

I love that this story is written form the perspective of the oil/plastic bottle. The illustrations draw you in. My 4-year old likes this book.

The Adventures of a Plastic Bottle is definitely a cute story for a younger child, but I think an older child might quickly become bored after reading it once. My kids (ages 2 & 4) think it's pretty neat to read about the life of a plastic bottle but they are also really into all things factory and trucks at this age. The art is really great and the story is nice, but older kids might outgrow it too quickly!

My kids enjoyed learning new information abut how plastic bottles get recycles and reused again! They were amazed that the everyday things we use are recycled. Very educational!
