Vegbooks Blog - Carolyn M. Mullin

"A “Red Level” book in Picture Window Books’ Read-it! Readers series, Max Goes to the Recycling Center places its audience alongside Max’s diverse group of friends as they tour the local recycling hub. Together, we learn how items are separated and repurposed (bottles into shirts; paper into cereal boxes), and the significance of these efforts: to reduce waste and to “make the world a better place.” The sweet excursion ends with pictures of Max collecting bottles, cans and paper so he can do his part to heal the planet. What’s most helpful about this series is the reading level guide, whereby the red tag indicates that familiar topics, common words and repeating sentence patterns are used throughout the text. Author Adria F. Klein’s note to parents is also constructive: When sharing a book with your child, read in short stretches, pausing often to talk about the pictures. Have your child turn the pages and point to the pictures and familiar words. And be sure to reread favorite stories or parts of stories…There is no right or wrong way to share books with children. Find time to read with your child, and pass on the legacy of literacy. Well said! Vegbooks followers may also find Max’s adventures to a farmer’s market and a nature center of interest in this sweet series." - Vegbooks Blog

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Carrie Hane Hung

"Max is on another adventure. This time, he and his classmates are on a field trip to the recycling center. The guide at the center explains what items can be recycled and why it is important to recycle. As Max and his friends tour the center, they see how the materials are sorted into large bins for recycling. The guide tells them that the recycled materials will be made into different things. A plastic bottle is recycled to become a shirt and newspapers are made into boxes. At home, Max does his part in helping the environment by sorting materials that can be recycled. There are color illustrations supporting the text throughout the story. In the front of the book, a brief guide explains the features of the book and provides suggestions for adults who are supporting beginning readers. This book is part of the “Read-it! Readers” series, which includes several more stories about Max." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
