Paperback  $9.95
ISBN: 9781607186274
About the book: From sea urchins in the Atlantic Ocean to bandicoots on the Australian savanna, animals all over the world recycle. Explore how different animals in different habitats use recycled material to build homes, protect themselves and get food. This fascinating collection of animal facts will teach readers about the importance of recycling and inspire them to take part in protecting and conserving the environment by recycling in their own way. key phrases for educators: recycling, animal adaptations and behaviors, geography

Review:  Nature Recycles How About You”  presents recycling in the animal world and challenges us to recycle too.  The repetitive text makes it a good read aloud for small children to join in and repeat with you.  Large full color illustrations are bright and cheery, drawing you into the page.  Young children will enjoy the illustrations and older children will learn of the many different ways to recycle. 

There are teacher helps at the end of the book that would be good to integrate into the classroom.  Children will leave the book with a new sense of recycling and perhaps find ways to recycle things in their own way as well. (reviewed by Claudette Delorge, Librarian)
