Nature Recycles - How About You? - Children's Book Review

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Book Synopsis:

From sea urchins in the Atlantic Ocean to bandicoots on the Australian savanna, animals all over the world recycle. Explore how different animals in different habitats use recycled material to build homes, protect themselves and get food. This fascinating collection of animal facts will teach readers about the importance of recycling and inspire them to take part in protecting and conserving the environment by recycling in their own way.

My Review:

If there's one eco-friendly effort I'm passionate about, it's recycling.  Nature Recycles - How About You? teaches children the importance of recycling and how different animals use their environment and discarded objects to repurpose them.  There are a few words in the book that children may be unfamiliar with but it's a good resource for showing how animals recycle and how children can do the same.  In the "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book learning is further enhanced by explaining why animals recycle, finding animals on a map, and a True or False on reducing, reusing and recycling.

Nature Recycles - How About You? is a Spring 2013 release from Sylvan Dell Publishing.
