    1. 1."Nature Recyles-How about you? by Michelle Lord with copyright date of 2013 and recommendation for 5 to 8 year olds. This book tells how animals reuse things in nature. Like a hermit crab that resuses a shell it finds left from another. It also has downloadable activities listed. 2. My rational for twin text seletion utilizes content from both books to connect the reader to nature and recycling. I chose the twin text book by Gill Lewis called "White Dolphin" copyright date 2012 to accompany th [...]

    2. In order to preserve the planet, humans and animals alike should do everything they can to help. Can animals pick up and clean debris and recycle like humans can? The answer is yes and they've been doing it for a long time. If you should visit the desert be mindful of large mounds of hot sand scorched by the sun. Inside you may find termites burrowing deep inside, and when they abandon their home snakes, birds and mammals move in. Deep in the rainforest the poison dart frog carries his tadpole b [...]

    3. My Review: This book gives an insight look at how some creatures in the wild recycle. The hermit crabs helps keep the shores clean by eating rotting ocean debris.The wren and her mate gather twigs, spider webs, leaves, trash and snakeskin to build a nest to keep their eggs warm.The owls use the abandoned hole in an old saguaro cactus as a safe home for her and her chicks.The Asian elephant use the fallen banana leaf to wave flies away and for lunch. The book gives examples of many more animals w [...]

    4. Review: “Nature Recycles How About You” presents recycling in the animal world and challenges us to recycle too. The repetitive text makes it a good read aloud for small children to join in and repeat with you. Large full color illustrations are bright and cheery, drawing you into the page. Young children will enjoy the illustrations and older children will learn of the many different ways to recycle. There are teacher helps at the end of the book that would be good to integrate into the cla [...]

    5. This is an outstanding book for children from preschool age to about 6th grade. It is written by Michelle Lord in an easy to understand format and in an high interest area for both children and adults. I was thrilled to learn facts about animal life that I didn't know and can't wait to share this book with my 3 and 6 year old grandchildren. The illustrations by Cathy Morrison are bright and appealing with vivid colors and accurate depictions of creatures in their natural habitat. This book is a [...]

    6. It's a pretty nifty idea to highlight the many ways animals reuse natural materials. After reading the book and noting all the great examples of animals doing the right thing, young readers just may decide to follow their lead. The book tells how a decorator sea urchin, a hermit crab, a Carolina wren, a dung beetle, and termites reuse material. If even water can be recycled, why can't humans recycle their clothing, plastic and aluminum? I liked the lively, vividly-colored illustrations and the g [...]

    7. Great as a tool in class, but the book is a bit too overlong and features silly back matter (bibliography: good, quiz with the answers upside down: bad). And the book itself (text, layout) has a vanity press feel to it. I'll check this book out from the library, but not purchase it.
