Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Carrie Hane Hung

"It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time for chores around the house. Jenna helps her brothers, Ray, Rick and Rob, understand the “three R’s” (i.e., reduce, reuse and recycle) as they complete their tasks. She stops Ray from just dumping all the trash and assists him in sorting the items into recycling bins. Then, Jenna tells Rick how to reduce, reuse, and recycle as he does the yard work. Finally, she advises Rob on ways to reduce his ecological impact when he goes shopping. Jenna focuses on the many ways to make their carbon footprints smaller. Throughout the book, the brightly-colored illustrations support the text. Young readers may need assistance with the vocabulary. The backmatter includes an activity to encourage readers to think about ecological ways to save the earth’s resources. Those readers wishing to pursue more information about recycling will find additional books listed and information about accessing the FactHound website of links. This book is part of the “Read-it! Readers: Science” series." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

Susan Blackaby

Susan Blackaby started writing in Mrs. Nichols' third grade class at Green Gables. She didn't think of becoming a writer until she had tried a few other things, including goat milking and weaving. Over the past 20 years, Susan has written textbooks, workbooks, and readers by the dozen for kids in elementary school. In 2002, her first trade book, Rembrandt's Hat, was named one of the top ten picture books of the year by the Washington Post. Susan lives in Portland, Oregon, with two people, two labs, and the nicest kitty in the world.
