Garbology Kids “Where Do Recyclable Materials Go?” Review and GIVEAWAY!

I have mentioned before how much we love reading to LA. Our most recent find is from a new series called Garbology Kids. The book is titled “Where Do Recyclable Materials Go?” This book is an adorable story of a dog who chases a recycling truck and the journey his family takes to find him. Although this book does tell a cute story, it is also an incredible resource for recycling facts that children can learn so much from. 
This is the book is the first book in the Garbology Kids series and is the debut children’s book by Sabbithry Persad. She is also the founder of Firewater Media Group and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. She resides in Toronto. 

Again, this is the story of a dog who chases a recycling truck and the family’s journey to find him. Along the way they makes stops and learn about recycling. The most interesting stop in my opinion is their final stop, the MURF, or the Materials Recovery Facility. Not only is this place interesting, but also a very educational part of this book. It’s just like being a child and going on a field trip! It’s great! This is a 40 page book that really does educate our little ones! There are recycling facts throughout the story pages as well as many additional things in the back of the book. There is a page devoted to fun recycling facts. Another page in the back of the book is titled “For Reflection”. I LOVE this page. It asks questions about the story, giving you discussion points for you and your children (or your students if you are a teacher!). There are also sections about being a “garbologist”, experiments and activities (love these too!), and finally a note to parents. teachers and librarians. This book is so much more than a story. It is an amazing resource of information about recycling!  As you all know, my darling husband is a teacher. I cannot wait to hear his stories about how his students love this book!
