Booklist - 03/01/2023 *Starred Review* Have you ever finished your lunch and, as you’re ready to throw away your trash, wondered, “Can I recycle this?” This is a great, simplified manual to answer that question and more. Romer is an environmental lawyer and a leading expert on single-use plastic reduction and reuse in the U.S. As she’s done for adult readers, here she offers children an accessible breakdown of the what, why, and how of recycling. Romer adopts a conversational tone while incorporating just the right number of specifics as she walks readers through common recycling dos and don’ts and the general journey of an item placed in a recycling bin. Young’s childlike artwork includes smiling bottles and cans (which provide speech-bubble commentary), and helpful diagrams show objects moving through a recycling plant as they are sorted, squished into bales, and—in the case of plastics—sent to an extruder to become every child’s new favorite word: nurdles! Back matter includes an author’s note, glossary, and a thoughtfully curated list of additional resources that features a documentary, literature, and website recommendations, as well as the suggestion to tour one’s local recycling facility. A fun and incredibly useful introduction to reuse and recycling. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
