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."

Imaginative and informative children’s book about how to help the environment I really enjoyed this children’s book about how to help the environment by recycling metal. I think this would make a great read for any child and their classroom. I plan to give one to every kiddo and teacher in my life this holiday season. Helping our environment really starts when we’re young and if I can influence some youth to take more care it’s the least I can do for Mother Earth. Also, love the Pearl Jam references! Read more

Save the world, 1 can at a time! We live in the desert and sadly see garbage all over the trails, often times they're old aluminum cans. Since reading this book, my 2 kids have been excited to 'look for the cans' on their outdoor adventures, and we pick them up to recycle when we get home. This book had some invaluable info written in a way that a 3 and 5 year old could understand. The colorful pictures kept their attention, and helped them better understand the importance of recycling. They are excited to cash in their 'can treasures' and save some money for new toys. They also eagerly look for the 'recycle' logo on all our trash so that we can better dispose of our trash. Great read, cute and fun! Read more
