Dinosaurs to the Rescue! A Guide to Protecting Our Planet by Laurie Krasny Brown & Marc Tolon Brown

Following the basic principles ‘reduce, re-use, recycle’, this guide features clever dinosaurs full of ideas that teach young children to use less of the earth’s precious resources, find new ways for old household items, and recycle things that used to just get thrown away.

A special section encourages children to appreciate and respect the earth’s gifts and offers ways to give something back – by planting a garden, taking care of wildlife, or cleaning up a neighbourhood park. The book is even printed on recycled paper!
