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

This book is one of my collection for a Recycling education center. It is helpful because it breaks down the process of landfilling and recycling as well as shares what we throw away as Americans via a pie chart.

My 8 year old read this book to me for health. We are learning about waste and pollution. This book includes at dumps, landfills, ocean dumping, incineration, recycling, the end uses, and reducing our garbage to begin with. A very good book that I would recommend for grades 1-3rd. It would also make a good book for social studies.

This is just an "ok" book.

Trash disposal, composting, and recycling are utterly fascinating to kids, but this book was blah. It was focused more on the fierce urgency of implementing community recycling programs than on the interesting and exciting details of sorting and recycling and landfilling.

I used this book with 1st and 2nd graders. There is a lot of information provided about recycling garbage (how plastics, paper, newspapers and metal) are processed at their respective recycling plant. The book encouraged a lot of relative conversation.

This book satisfies a child's natural curiosity about the everyday world around us. That garbage that we carry out in big plastic bags after raking the lawn, cleaning out the cellar, or tidying up the kitchen -- you just have to wonder where all this garbage ends up!

Diagrams, charts, graphs and cute illustrations will put kids in the know about dumps, landfills, recycling and preventing unnecessary waste to help the environment.

Well done volume on a timely subject.

My 3 year old grandson loves this book. I bought it for him because he loves to watch the garbage truck come by every week. This book really taught him what happens to the garbage after pick-up.

This is a great book about how we deal with our garbage. It is easy to read and understand. My students are middle school who are learning English. This book allows my students access to information while learning to read English. I highly recommend this series and this book.

While my preschooler enjoys this book a lot I have to revise the text quite a bit. Even though it has been revised the information in it seems quite dated. If you are looking for a simple introduction to the concept of recycling it does have great detailed illustrations of various types of recycling.
