This week’s children’s book review is all about Drastic Plastic And Troublesome Trash. It was published by Welbeck Publishing and can be purchased on Amazon*.
We don’t think twice before we buy something new and when we go to the shops we take the packaging for granted. But where does all our rubbish go to and how can we keep it under control so that it doesn’t ruin our planet?
This thoughtful but incredibly fun book enters the mysterious world of recycling, discovering how materials such as plastic, glass, paper and electronics are made and recycled. It also looks at the many ways we can help to reduce the amount of waste we throw out, has suggestions and activities for upcycling and explains how recycling is crucial to preserving the beautiful and life-sustaining world we live in.
Over the past few years we have been making a real effort to be a lot more careful with our waste, and to make sure we recycle as much as possible. However, there’s still a lot we don’t know and this makes it hard to teach Erin. If you’re anything like us, then maybe a book like Drastic Plastic And Troublesome Trash would be helpful.
Drastic Plastic And Troublesome Trash talks about all different kinds of materials that can either be recycled or that might be seen as ‘rubbish’ instead. I’ll be honest, I never actually really thought about how some of these materials were made. Each material is broken up into different sections and this makes it really easy for children to find out little snippets at a time.
The pages of the book are really bright and colourful and there are lots of different things to look at. This is a really visual book and it shows various materials are changed from one thing to another, how they can be recycled and even how they can be upcycled to be made into something else. It’s a great way of giving children ideas about how to do better, and to realise what happens to our wasted items.
I think we can all do a little bit better and learn a bit more about the materials we use every day. Not only is this book a great resource for children but it helped me as well!
