When we throw a glass jar, plastic bottle, or soda can in the trash, it goes straight to the landfill. But if we take another simple step, there could be a new life awaiting each item. When we recycle, we go on an eco journey as items get turned into something new. Help save the planet as we learn all about how small actions can have big impacts!

SLJ Review of Eco Journeys
Each of the four books in this series follows an item (piece of paper, glass jar, plastic bottle, and soda can) through its creation, usage, disposal, recycling process, and reuse.
The descriptions and details are easy to understand and provide just the right amount of information for young readers. The use of photographs, colorful graphics, simple text bubbles and single sentences make the books extremely visually appealing.
Readers that usually gravitate toward books by National Geographic Kids will find these titles equally as attractive. A table of contents and glossary make these books easy to use and the “Quick Quiz” at the end of the book is a fun review of what was presented.
VERDICT: This is a fantastic purchase for libraries looking for easy reading books about recycling.
