For Earth Day and all year round, an inspiring guide that teaches young activists how to combat waste.

Each year, a single person can create up to a ton of garbage. That's the weight of a small hippo! Where does all that waste come from? Where does it end up? How does composting work? And what else can we do to help our planet? Your Planet Needs You! is packed with simple explanations of of how kids and their families can reduce, re-use, and recycle to help clean up our planet.

With easy-to-read infographics and a light, accessible tone, Your Planet Needs You! shows that taking care of our environment can be both fun and rewarding.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "First published in Australia, this user-friendly nonfiction guide explains waste; its origins and consequences, including ocean pollution and global warming; and the five R's (reduce, reuse, recycle, renew, and "really get involved"). Flowcharts, timelines, and how-to instructions--such as how to compost--help organize information as Bunting conversationally explains why readers should reduce waste: "As their funky filling breaks down, landfill pits let off nasty greenhouse gases... which are warming our planet too quickly. So the less waste we can send to landfills, the better." Googly-eyed characters of varying skin tones, and various anthropomorphized items--boxes, cans, T-shirts--populate the mellow-colored pages alongside speech bubbles and humorous commentary. This visually engaging primer offers cogent reminders and easily implemented actions fit for any age. Front matter includes an author's note. Ages 5--8. (Feb.)"
