What better way to get your children interested in recycling than reading a fun story? As part of National Share a Story month, we have been sharing our teams favourite children's books about recycling.
Our first book was Charlie and Lola's "We are Extremely Very Good Recyclers".
After Charlie convinces Lola to recycle her old toys instead of throwing them away, Lola discovers a recycling competition. If she can recycle one hundred plastic, metal, and paper items, she can get her very own real live tree to plant. But she only has two weeks, so Lola decides to ask her classmates to help. They turn out to be extremely very good recyclers indeed.
The book includes recycling tips as well as a tree poster just like Lola's, so kids can keep track of their recycling projects and help to save the planet all on their own 💚
If you are interested in teaching your children more about #recycling, this is definitely a great book to start with!
Our second recommendation was "George Saves The World By Lunchtime" by Dr Jo Readman.
George is determined to save the world by lunchtime, but he's not quite sure how. Grandpa suggests they start by recycling the yoghurt pot from his breakfast, putting his banana peel in the compost pile, and hanging the washing to dry in the sun. A bike trip to the recycling bank, charity shop and local farmers' market show how recycling and re-using materials, and using less petrol and local produce can really help save the world. George even gets a favourite toy fixed!
Our final recommendation is from children's favourite Peppa Pig: "Recycling Fun".
This book is a great way to get children interested in recycling from a very young age - who doesn't love Peppa?
