  Publishers Weekly Review

Familiar faces impart a message of conservation, as Charlie and Lola learn the basics of recycling. When Lola declares that she is "throwing everything away," to avoid being messy, Charlie suggests she recycle ("because if we throw everything away, then we will all be completely buried under a massive, huge pile of garbage"). The duo creates a "tree counter," adding new leaves to the branches every time they recycle, and works toward the goal of planting a real tree. Ages 3-5. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Summary
After Charlie convinces Lola to recycle her old toys instead of throwing them away, Lola discovers a recycling competition. If she can recycle one hundred plastic, metal, and paper items, she can get her very own real live tree to plant. But she only has two weeks, so Lola decides to ask her classmates to help. They turn out to be extremely very good recyclers indeed. <p>This adventure is printed on FSC-approved paper and includes recycling tips as well as a tree poster just like Lola's, so kids can keep track of their recycling projects and help to save the planet all on their own.<br> <br></p>
