A day late but here we go…

It’s World Book Day (yesterday!) and we love a good story here in the Waste Education Team so we would like to share some of our favourite books!

1. Tidy by Emily Gravett

A great story about being too tidy! Amazing illustrations and lots of animals to spot. One to read aloud to 3-6 year olds.

2. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

Classic American book about altruism. Look beyond the simple illustrations for a great examination of the act of giving. Suitable for all but great for KS2 children (8-11).

3. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

Another classic book – and so relevant to the world today. Protect our natural resources as we can’t survive without them! Should be read and re-read by everyone.

4. Greta and the Giants by Zoe Tucker and Zoe Persico

A familiar story as Greta stands up to giants to save the world she loves. Love the positive message and hope at the end of this book. Suitable for 3-8 year olds.

5. Ada’s Violin by Susan Hood and Sally Wern Comport

Amazing true story of the recycled orchestra of Paraguay. Suitable for all ages.
