Review: Michael Recycle and the Tree Top Cops by Ellie Patterson and Alexandra Colombo


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Even super-heroes need a vacation, so where better than one of the world’s natural wonders, the great Redwood Forest!

But disaster has struck and the forest is under threat... can Michael Recycle and his new friends, the Tree Top Cops, save the day?
MY TAKE:

Deforestation is a very serious issue. If you agree or you want to introduce your kids to the concept, Michael Recycle and the Tree Top Cops is a good beginner book.

Michael Recycle is a kid who wants to save the world "from man-made destruction". In this book, he's protecting the world, or at least the Great Redwood Forest, from deforestation.

The book uses rhymes and gorgeous illustrations to impart its lesson. There are some big words, like "ponder", which younger kids might not understand, so this is the perfect opportunity to help them expand their vocabulary

Thanks to NetGalley and IDW Publishing for the e-ARC. Publication date of Michael Recycle and the Tree Top Cops is on March 20, 2012.

THE GOOD:
  1. Pretty illustrations with beautiful coloring and perspective.
  2. Pro-environment story line.
  3. Fun rhymes and imagery.
THE BAD:
  1. Resolution is quick.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
There were restaurants and shops
and doctors and schools,
and everyone lived
by the recycling rules.

  1. You want to read a fun, pro-environment book.
