"Recycle Every Day" by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace is a great book to start a conversation about recycling. As more and more cities introduce single stream recycling, it gets easier all the time. And when you get the whole family on board, you will be amazed at how much less trash is in your bin every week!
Minna's school is having a poster contest. Everyone is supposed to create a contest all about recycling - the winners will be featured in a special calendar. But she is just not sure what to make her poster about. As she and her family goes through the week, she notices all the different ways they are recycling, and then gets an inspiration! She makes her poster about recycling everyday!
In addition to the main theme of recycling, this book is a good way to teach children about creativity, working hard, and the days of the week and months of the year.
