Young readers will explore the pages trying to identify potentially hazardous litter (plastic rings, sharp metal lids) cleverly depicted in the illustrations. Knapp delivers a compelling message about determination and the power of an individual's actions while raising readers' awareness of environmental issues and skillfully incorporates information about carbon footprints, recycling and ecofriendly solutions. Students (preschool through 3rd grade) will root for Thurman and be motivated to take action to protect our planet.
