"What makes the book fun for young readers (and demonstrates the idea of reuse) are the activities on each page that ask the children to blow on the flowers, circle the earth with their fingers or tilt the whole book to see how trees can grow..... Each page has bright, bold colors along with simple, cheery text....this book offers a clever way to introduce the importance of recycling." – School Library Journal
"Effective image-to-text correlation makes this valuable to the youngest children, and the gamelike nature of the book’s design adds even more appeal."–Booklist
