Follow that garbage truck…to the landfill to see how trash keeps piling up…to the incinerator to see how trash can be turned into energy…to the recycling center to see how a soda bottle can be turned into a flowerpot. This classic picture book is a fascinating exploration of what happens to our trash.
Now rebranded with a new cover look, this picture book is filled with fun charts and diagrams to explain how we deal with the problem of too much trash. Activities throughout the book empower kids to help the environment, whether it's by separating trash from recycling or using a lunch box instead of a paper bag. Both text and artwork were vetted for accuracy by Robin Woods, formerly of the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Dr. William Rathje, founder of the Garbage Project and professor emeritus at the University of Arizona, and Thomas Frankiewicz.
This is a Level 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

My four year old grandchild had been asking her mother questions as to why they had to dispose of things in different places ,I quickly offered to find material on this. SURE ENOUGH "Where Does the Garbage Go?" was perfect She has enjoyed this book very much and I noticed her checking out our home for our recycling site. SO GLAD!.
for some reason, my 6 year old cannot put this book down. He especially likes the parts about how different things are recycled.
Excellent description and illustrations. I was able to use this with my preschoolers with some adjustments, but it would be best for Kindergarten and up.
