What can Ruby the cat do with her favoriteóbut worn-outódancing shoe? Use it as a planter for pansies, perhaps? Anna Alter's crafty and creative activity book shows readers 6 to 9 how to appreciate and incorporate recycling as a part of everyday life, with a dozen projects that require only a bit of imagination, a few common materials, and a little adult help. Turn a worn flip-flop into an art stamp, make a ripped shower curtain into an apron, and stuff an old T-shirt to make a new pillow.
"Recycling becomes lots of fun in this sprightly activity book.... The instructions are clear and simple, and what really makes this a standout is Alter's adorable artwork featuring a coterie of animals at work and play."óBooklist
