Choose to Reuse
In Choose to Reuse,by Lisa Bullard, Tyler is in charge of taking out the trash in his house, but there’s too much of it. He and his mom decide to reuse things more. They find ways like handing down clothes to Tyler’s little cousin and creating a homemade birthday gift for Grandma. When they make reusable cloth napkins, it seems “really fancy” (instructions to make your own napkins are included in the back of the book.) And instead of buying new toys, Tyler trades with his brother. As he says, “Now we both have something new to play with.” Other titles in the series include: Rally for Recycling, Go Easy on Energy, Earth Day Every Day, Look Out for Litter, and Power Up to Fight Pollution.
