Booklist - 03/01/2023 These ecology-minded offerings take everyday objects that young audiences will recognize and tell where they come from and where they end up. Facing spreads featuring full-page photos overlaid with images and word bubbles show how items are made, what they’re made of, and how—after just one or two uses—they’re often thrown away to sit in landfills for years. The books follow a similar format by offering two alternatives: recycling and upcycling. The spreads on recycling explain how the items can be turned into new products; pages about upcycling show pictures of objects turned into craft projects or used for alternative purposes. Glass Jar starts with an empty recycled jar; it’s melted down and turned into something new: another glass. Back matter includes brief quizzes and glossaries. Eye-catching and relatable, the accessible guides in the Eco Journeys series (4 titles) will help kids understand the importance of reusing and recycling. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
