Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Definitely one for adults and children alike, it is as I have already said: Brilliant!
This one has been taken to school also by Master10 and his class have been reading through it together, and learning all about keeping everything green. And they are going to be doing the art activities within their lessons over the coming weeks.
Very educational and full of information. Also some interesting things (actions) that we take for granted and do not realize the effect they have, quite an eye-opener.
I love that the book is printed on recycled paper, and think this is definitely a great choice considering what the book is about. This impressed me a lot, as there are many books on 'recycling and looking after the planet' but not many start with the paper the book is printed on. Well done.
A great educational tool that I feel both homes and school and yes even kindergartens and pre-schools should look at purchasing.
What an excellent educational book! My children learn all about these easy recycling tips through school and kindergarten, however this book shows them more details and facts, giving them more understanding of what 'going green' in your own home can achieve. Also what a great touch with the cover being recycled.
If you are looking for a way to educate your children to take care of our planet, then this book is for you and your children. Excellent art work and photos make it an easy to follow book.
My children were also very excited to see how many art activities there were to create using all recycled items in our home. A few example being ... using a toothbrush or straw to paint with, making junk robots and collages etc. Can not wait to do more recycled art with them. With 30 different art ideas I doubt we will run out of ideas any time soon.

The author chronicles the lives of three generations of Chinese men in America.
Woven from memory, myth, and fact - a journey into the hearts and minds of Chinese men in America: the grandfather who slaved in the Sierra Nevadas on the transcontinental railroad; the father who danced down Fifth Avenue, like Fred Astaire, on days off from the laundry; and the son who returned to China to find release from his dead mother's angry spirit. Here is an accomplished storyteller's remarkably beautiful tale of what they endured in a strange new land.
