Book review: Join the No-Plastic Challenge!: A First Book of Reducing Waste, by Scot Ritchie

Ritchie, Scot. Join the No-Plastic Challenge!: A First Book of Reducing Waste. (Exploring Our Community series, book 7.) Kids Can Press, 2019. 32 pages. $16.99. ISBN 978-1525302404. Ages 5 and up. P9 Q9

This is a very timely subject of reducing plastic waste that is full of valuable and useable information on why plastic is bad for everything to ideas for using other reusable items as alternatives. It also explains in a manner that children will understand why straws are not good, how to plan for a party and not use plastic, and also how to help clean up the waste now here.

VERDICT: This is a subject often discussed, and the way this was written will inform kids and the adults who are reading to them. The illustrations are simple yet effective, and the Words to Know at the back are a helpful tool. Great to see this children’s book to teach this important subject.
