We Are Extremely Very Good Recyclers

Lauren Child, Author . Dial $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8037-3335-0

Familiar faces impart a message of conservation, as Charlie and Lola learn the basics of recycling. When Lola declares that she is “throwing everything away,” to avoid being messy, Charlie suggests she recycle (“because if we throw everything away, then we will all be completely buried under a massive, huge pile of garbage”). The duo creates a “tree counter,” adding new leaves to the branches every time they recycle, and works toward the goal of planting a real tree. Ages 3–5. (Mar.)
