Gail Gibbons has written and illustrated more than one hundred informational books for children. A talented writer who turns fact into entertainment, she has traveled across the country to research topics as diverse as deep-sea submersibles, the largest tree in the world, and more. Gail Gibbons divides her time between a cottage on Matinicus Island off the coast of Maine and a farmhouse in Vermont surrounded by sugar maple trees.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-- An eminently readable and well-organized offering that's filled with information. Gibbons's cartoons in primary shapes and colors graphically illustrate the contents of a landfill and how to recycle various products to cut down on the need for landfills--for which space is already in short supply. Discussing paper, plastic, glass, cans, and polystyrene, the author describes how to recycle, why it's necessary, and its benefits. The top two-thirds of each page is devoted to illustrations that perfectly complement the brief text below. The book ends with a mention of the ozone layer and the limited potential for recycling polystyrene, followed by 14 facts about garbage. The plea is to make our planet a safer and healthier place to live with a habit that is fun and easy--recycling. An excellent, functional introduction. --Carole B. Kirkpatrick, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
