1. Book Review: Where Do Recyclable Materials Go? by Sabbithry Persad

Follow Bubbles and the recycling truck … to the MURF. The Materials Recovery Facility! Find out how papers, plastics, metals and glass are collected, sorted and baled to be made into new products.

From the founder of Green Solutions Magazine comes the cheery series with kids who investigate waste and clean up their community. In "Where Do Recyclable Materials Go?," Tiana learns about recycling while she and her family searches for their dog Bubbles who had chased after the recycle truck. On their adventure, they explore the MURF—the MRF (Materials Recovery Facility) where they see how recyclable materials are sorted and baled for manufacturing. Based on facts about the process of recycling in industrial countries, this book helps children understand the importance of recycling to save natural resources and much more.

In "Where Do Recyclables Materials Go?," you will learn:

- how recyclable materials are collected
- how recyclable materials are diverted from landfills
- how recycling saves resources, energy and money
- how to identify solutions for waste disposal through practical exercises
- how to take action through hands-on activities

Colorful illustrations and diagrams complement the story of Tiana, Peter and Bubbles (their dog).

This book reminded me of the old Magic School Bus books in the way it was written and the illustrations. 

The family in this book is trying to find their dog who has followed the Recycling truck.  In the process of looking for their dog they learn about what can be recycled and where materials go after they are collected.  The take a tour of a recycling center and learn how materials are sorted and what they are used for.  This is an educational book and I learned a few things I didn't know.  Too bad we don't have a local Recycling Center, I'm sure it would make a fun field trip for kids.
