This energetic book celebrates recycling with an anthropomorphic recycling truck and happily smashed recyclables. The groovy Professor Potts puts things in cosmic context, explaining that in Earth's 4.5 billion-year existence, “very little has been added and almost nothing has been taken away.... The Earth recycles atoms.” The occasional phrase might raise an eyebrow (“earthquakes are the earth-shattering noise of rocks recycling”), but readers should relish the highlighter yellow accents and humorous asides. Ages 5–8. (Feb.)
