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.

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.

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 is a fun book about start to finish the life of a plastic bottle. I had no idea where plastic came from myself so this was also great for me, (the parent). Educational, letting my children know that when you recycle items can go on for such a long time helping save the environment. Great story, super cute for children!

I don't think I have ever given anything a one star review on Amazon. But after reading this book I had no other choice. It feels like this is propaganda from the oil industry. The book glorifies the life of a plastic bottle. First of all, plastic is not truly recyclable, it is down cycled. Sure, it will be reused and turned into another product, but eventually that product will wind up in the landfill. The book begins talking about all the wonderful things that come from crude oil. The plastic bottle is so excited to be made into something from this oil. It is then used for a while and then turned into another product. As an educator and environmentalist I feel this book gives the wrong perception of plastic. We really need to be focusing on our over consumption of plastics rather than teaching false concepts like it's okay to use plastic because it is "recyclable."

I thought the story and pictures were cute. They describe the life of a plastic bottle from drilling for crude oil to recycling the bottle. Reading the book did not hold the attention of my grandchildren ages 9 and 7.

My class read this book during earth week. I had to simplify some of the facts so my preschoolers could understand the different facts, it was very technical at times. they were amazed about how the bottles came to be.
