The author's use of a magnifying glass throughout the book showcases various interesting facts about recycling.
This is a book worth reading several times. I believe even adults will be surprised about how much we waste and how easy it would be to recycle. Where Do Recyclable Materials Go? should be part of all home, school, and community libraries. The questions, activities, and facts at the end of the book re-enforce the many ways we can help our communities and our world. A great read for all!

The family in this book is trying to find their dog who has followed the Recycling truck. In the process of looking for their dog they learn about what can be recycled and where materials go after they are collected. The take a tour of a recycling center and learn how materials are sorted and what they are used for. This is an educational book and I learned a few things I didn’t know. Too bad we don’t have a local Recycling Center, I’m sure it would make a fun field trip for kids.

I've always wondered about the recycling process and how things are sorted. As a family who are recycling look for their lost dog in a recycling center, they are given a tour, and the process is explained. In addition to the story there are sidebars giving even more details about the recycling process. With all the detail, I think the book is best read by reading straight through the story the first read. Later upon rereading, each sidebar can be read, getting into more detail.
The book would be great for early grade teachers, to open a discussion about recycling (and the rest of the reduce, reuse, recycle effort at preserving our planet for our future).
The best thing is, the book is manufactured using renewable energy and on environmentally friendly paper!
