|What You Need to Know:
• A simple recycling primer for our youngest readers.
• It combines the elements of recycling with an appealing superhero. What pre-schooler can't relate to a superhero?
• Just in time for Earth Day, but shouldn't be reserved for only Earth Day. Can be used whenever you want to
introduce environmentalism to a young audience.
• I especially like the section at the end entitled Go Green Tips, filled with basic tips on living greener that children can
put into practice right away.
