Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

by Cecilia Minden

Part of a Series: Language Arts Explorer.

By now, kids know about the three Rs of this title, but they're not always sure why or how to reduce, reuse, and recyle properly. This colorful, photo- and sidebar-filled title covers the basics but also goes much further, using case studies to illustrate, for example, "Reducing in Colorado," "Reusing in British Columbia," and "Recycling in Denmark." Pages that are printed to resemble notebook paper present tips that kids can implement, such as trading things with friends rather than buying new items, and how to "precycle." The book also reinforces the idea that not every way of being green has been figured out, by posing open-ended questions ( "Should cities put a tax on plastic and paper bags?"). An engaging primer on an important topic.
