Michael Recycle PDF Print E-mail

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.
Sweet Book Summary:
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.
