Michael Recycle to the Rescue
Sure, "Michael, recycle!" could be a command, but in the children's book Michael Recycle
, he is a super-green hero. Written by Ellie Bethel and illustrated by Alexander Colombo, this book takes readers on a rhyming adventure to save a town where garbage piled up and people were "lazy". Despite his zany colander cap, Michael tells the people they must recycle, and they listen to his advice.
They recycled their paper,
Their plastic and cans,
And even old junk
Like used pots and pans!
They also began
The "Be Greener Campaign."
They grew their own kumquats
And saved up the rain.
The book ends with several simple "Michael Recycle's Go Green Tips" for children to implement. Michael Recycle
does not address the complexities of climate change, like The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming
; however, children will enjoy the rhyming text and illustrations.
