By Deb HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 19, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Charlie's little sister Lola decided she was going to get rid of all her junk and had an armful to throw in a box. She was going to clean up all those old "things" that were cluttering up her room. Lola got the idea when they went over to Marv's house and were "dared" to go into his brother Marty's disgusting, "complete pigsty." When they took a peek inside they not only were hit with a yucky, stinky smell, but were yelled at on top of it all. "Get out of my room! ... NOW! Not a problem. They ran like crazy because no one wants to be around a barfy place like that!

Lola was going to throw everything out, but Charlie suggested she recycle it. "Bicycle it?" Nah, recycle. He told her about the process and said, "if we don't use things again, in the end we will just run out of everything." Lola read about a contest. If the school collected "a hundred of each thing" like tin cans, plastic and paper they would win a tree to plant. She unfolded the paper "tree counter." Charlie told her that "Every time you collect something to recycle you can stick a lead onto a branch." When the tree was full they would get a REAL tree to plant. The tree counter was almost complete, but needed a few more leaves. Now where to you think they found more junk for their collection? Pee yew!

This is a simple book with a powerful message on the importance of environmental responsibility. The mixed media art work includes a stunning page with the wide-eyed children standing at the bottom of a mound of garbage bags 'n junk. The comic characters may not appeal to all, but the story line is clever, clear and important. This would be an excellent book to read in a homeschool or classroom setting and actually carry out the project and set up a "tree counter." And, as it says on the bookplate in the book I'm reading, "With a twinkle in your eye and a song in your heart, always remember to do your part!"

Lola, a habitual pack rat, had a sudden urge to clean out her room upon seeing and smelling the pigsty that her friend's older brother lived in. Charlie, her older brother, cautioned her to think about the environment by recycling her old things rather than simply throwing them all away. Join Lola in learning from Charlie how the recycling process can turn old paper scraps into different types of new paper and packaging, and which types of materials can be sorted and collected for recycling. With its well-known characters, amusing plot twists, and pull-out poster, this satisfying book will help inform children about the importance of recycling and give them an incentive to start themselves.

Charlie and Lola are my favorite animated characters of my son's generation. They are funny and intelligent and interesting to look at with their multi textured multi media graphics and unique appearance. They are also excellent role models.

Charlie teaches his little sister Lola why and how to recycle after she sees a friend's room who's a bit of a hoarder and vows never to have such a messy room. The whole thing evolves into a school project and recycling competition to earn a tree for the school.

This books makes recycling fun and explains why it's necessary. Kids love to feel they're doing something worthwhile and this message empowers them to be proactive and make a difference.

My mother is a teacher, and I bought this for her as a way to help her class learn about recycling. I am a fan of the TV show, and this book is as cute as it is. Very good at explaining recycling to children and the benefits of recycling. The great surprise was to find the book contains a tree chart, so you and your children (or class if you're a teacher, as my mother is) can also do what Charlie and Lola do in the book. Love it.

I thought this book had some confusing concepts. Not wanting your room to be like a pig pen and not liking clutter are great things, but have nothing to do with being good for the planet, unless you stop BUYING junk. Also, not all clutter is recyclable. Yes, recycling is better than throwing stuff in the garbage, but using less stuff is the best thing, and the book didn't really focus on that. To me it made it seem that it's OK to keep bringing stuff home, as long as you recycle it and don't let it accumulate as clutter. I liked this one much better: Miss Fox's Class Goes Green
