Excerpt:

“It has great rhyming and rhythm and a fun chorus for the kids to learn. We used it on the day we planted seeds for our garden boxes. If your children know the difference between garbage and recycling and you want to add compost to their understanding of waste, this book is where to start. Great for learning about waste, the environment, plants and community! My 20 month old asks for it by name.”

Kids everywhere are knowledgeable about the environment and climate change. Not only is composting becoming more common in households and residential gardens, but many school gardens feature compost piles, too. But how do you start a compost pile? What’s safe to include? Perfect for an Earth Day focus or year-round reference, this inviting book provides all the answers for kids and families looking for simple, child-friendly ways to help the planet.
