Go Go Eco Apple

LoveReading View on Go Go Eco Apple

A perfect book for growing minds

Ever been asked what happens to the apple after you throw it into the green recycling bin? This book takes the very youngest on the apple core’s journey to the recycling plant and on until it is transformed into compost to help another apple tree to grow.  In board book format, this is perfect for the very youngest children.  The text is simple but stimulating, and the pictures clear and bright, full of things to spot, name and count. Added treats like a spinning wheel so that you can drop the apples into the compost bin, and a pull up tab to reveal the new tree, make it even more satisfying. Fun, informative and engaging, this is the perfect book for young eco-heroes.

More About This Book

A message from the author, Claire Phillip:    I was delighted to be asked by Tiny & Tim to write a series of preschool board books that introduce the basic concept of recycling to a very young audience.

To the layman, many of these processes can seem very dull! So the real challenge of Go, Go, Eco! was to take these transformative stages and make them fun and engaging for young readers. I was inspired by Richard Scarry’s work in his classic book What People Do All Day written more than 50 years ago where technical processes, like paper-making, are rendered in joyful and fascinating detail. Working alongside the wonderfully witty artist, Steve Wood, the Go, Go, Eco! books follow the remarkable journey of everyday objects, from something discarded to their whole new life, rather than just becoming landfill!

It became clear from my many hours of research, that recycling processes vary from plant-to-plant, so I set about simplifying and amalgamating the stages to make them appropriate to this age group and yet retain a solid core of authenticity.

The resources on our planet are limited and I believe engaging children in an appreciation of their scarcity and re-use is a small but positive contribution for their future.
