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.
Michael Recycle is an entertaining, easy to understand story about why we should recycle. Michael Recycle is a superhero who comes to the town of Abberdoo-Rimey "...where garbage was left to grow rotten and slimy." Michael saves the town when he explains how and why to recycle. Suddenly the people of Abberdoo-Rimey are all following his instructions for recycling and becoming greener. Michael Recycle's job was done - Abberdoo-Rimey was gleaming! The story is super simple, and therein lies the beauty of it. Just perfect for teaching young pre-schoolers about the need for recycling.
