A clean natural environment is the foundation of everything! It provides us with air, water and food to live, so it’s very important that we treat it with care. Playful flaps demonstrate where garbage does and doesn’t go, explain different types of waste – and how we can even avoid waste altogether. It’s also easy to save water. Even very young children will relate to this book and be keen to do their part. Cheerful illustrations and funny situations make this book an entertaining read.
