“Why Should I RECYCLE?’ is an illustrated paperback #1 Amazon Bestseller children’s book for Earth Day.

What if everybody threw away old bottles and newspapers, littering the world with glass and plastic and tin cans that should be recycled and made into new products? Mr. Jones is a teacher who sets a good example for kids by separating his trash for recycling. When he takes them on a class trip to a recycling plant they learn the value of recycling. Part of every child’s development involves asking questions.

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

Climb the mountains.

Swim in the sea.

Come take a walk on the earth with me.

Dance in the desert.

Swing in the trees.

So many wonders on earth to see!

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

Surf in the ocean.

Run on the beach.

Come take a walk on the earth with me.

Paddle a river.

Fish in a stream.

So many wonders on earth to see!

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

We can care about the climate and save energy.

We can clean up the trash and plant some trees.

We can reduce, reuse, recycle, go green!

And together we’ll make the earth beautiful and clean.

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

Celebrate Earth Day (echo)  Celebrate Earth Day (echo)

Celebrate Earth Day!
