Every day Jobs that interest kids!

My son, like many curious 5 year olds, enjoys watching the Garbage Truck. And he loves to ask questions such as posed by the book's title, Where Does the Garbage Go?
As with most books I have seen in the Let's Read and Find Out Science series, it begins with a story to engage the child in the books primary theme. This one begins in a "traditional" classroom setting where the children learn all about garbage from their classroom teacher. It's a great conversation starter with a young child or group of children to ask them where they think the garbage goes.
In this book children will learn:
1. what garbage is (various types of garbage - yard waste, consumer waste, recycling etc.)
2. simple diagrams explain how an incinerator works, how glass, aluminum, paper and plastic is recycled
3. the process that transpires at a landfill, which includes bulldozers, compactors and dump trucks (a thrill for my son for sure)
4. practical ways to reduce our own garbage
