Review:   Lola, a habitual pack rat, had a sudden urge to clean out her room upon seeing and smelling the pigsty that her friend's older brother lived in. Charlie, her older brother, cautioned her to think about the environment by recycling her old things rather than simply throwing them all away. Join Lola in learning from Charlie how the recycling process can turn old paper scraps into different types of new paper and packaging, and which types of materials can be sorted and collected for recycling. With its well-known characters, amusing plot twists, and pull-out poster, this satisfying book will help inform children about the importance of recycling and give them an incentive to start themselves.
