    I taught a lesson using this book and it worked great. I got a lot of positive response from the children on recycling. We started a recycling center in our classroom and it is working great. I have received feedback from the parents as well that they have started their own recycling at home since we started this unit in our classroom. A lot of positive things have come from the use of this book with our unit.

    Thanks

    This book is well-written and explains why we should recycle in a creative way. However, it does not rhyme and therefore gets a little dull to read. It is long and not very exciting. More suitable for kids over 8 or 9.

    I've just recently bought all of the Jan Green Why Should I? series and they are great! The books are easy to read for the little ones, not too much text is good, it goes right to the point, and that makes it easy for the children to understand. The illustrations are wonderfully colorful and will catch the children's attention in a heartbeat. Not only are they cute books, but they send out a great message, children need to know how to protect our Earth from a really early age and Jan Green did a splendid job.

    I read this book to a group of 3-5 year old children. They were able to follow the storyline and relate to things they could do to keep their environment clean. This falls right in line with any earth day activities or classroom emphasis you may be planning.

    At a level that all students can understand. Colorful pictures and information on how and why recycling is important. Younger students can relate to the children in the book, that they too can participate in the recycling process.

    We purchased this book to help teach our kids about Earth Day and why it's important to recycle! Our boys (ages 2 & 4) loved the pictures and were inspired to help us collect the newspapers, bottles, and cans after reading!

    My daughter used this book for green week at her son's school. She had previously found a copy and asked me to purchase this second one so it would be easier to share among the classrooms.

    This is a great book as an introduction to recycling. I read this book to my first graders to help them understand recycling and the importance of recycling to protect Earth.
