Check out our 1st book review! 

"One of the newest children’s books on BookBaby Bookshop, The Girl Who Recycled 1 Million Cans, is one that should be included on every family and classroom bookshelf. This valuable story introduces early readers to Ellie, a little girl who wants to protect the environment by recycling metal cans. She embarks on an adventure with her friends that teaches them that all metal can be recycled, and teamwork and collaboration can help them achieve their goals.

When I see books like this, I am reminded how valuable children’s books are. I wish that this book existed when I was a child. Teaching lessons about environmentalism at an early age is so crucial, and children’s fiction is the best way to help kids understand these concepts. We’re living in an era where action is needed to preserve our planet’s natural beauty and resources. Environmental protection is a complex and existential topic, and it certainly is no easy task to explain the gravity of it to children.

Although it isn’t easy, it is essential. Because of that, I’m so grateful that books like this exist. Kids need to learn at an early age the importance of recycling and protecting the planet so that future generations can enjoy Earth’s abundance.

Beyond its sustainability education, the book teaches lessons about teamwork, math, community, financial literacy, perseverance, sharing, and charity. This book really stands out because it’s hard to write a fictional story that is so practical. Think about it this way – a story that has unicorns also teaches concepts that apply to daily life. It’s the perfect combination of imaginative and pragmatic.

In addition to its valuable content, the book is vibrantly illustrated and written in a way that children could easily understand. You can get your copy on BookBaby Bookshop and also learn more about the book by visiting Scrap University Kids."
