The Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science series is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Prize for Outstanding Science Series. Each person in the United States makes almost five pounds of trash every day. That’s more per person per day than people make in any other country. What happens to our trash? How can we stop throwing so much stuff away? Read and find out! An ALA Booklist Top Ten Nonfiction series, the Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science books introduce basic science concepts to young children and help satisfy their ever-burning curiosity. With clear, simple prose, D. J. Ward explains how kids and their caregivers can reduce, reuse and recycle their cereal boxes, eggshells, plastic bottles and many other items usually considered garbage, while Paul Meisel’s kid-friendly illustrations bring these lessons to life. This Stage 2 LRFO could not come at a better time! As focus on decreasing pollution grows, D. J. Ward offers creative and fun solutions to help save our precious planet.
