"STARRED REVIEW! Three Cheers for Trees and What’s Sprouting in My Trash, two books from the Earth Matters series, offer simple, clear and accurate explorations of their subjects. Aimed at early primary school children, each book has easy to read text with related color illustrations. Short glossaries and supplemental reading lists at the ends of the books are a plus. An online reference,, leads to additional material. What’s Sprouting in My Trash introduces nature’s own recycling, of fallen leaves helping to enrich the soil. Worms and microorganisms in the soil do the work to turn waste into humus. The book describes composting, including what should and should not be used yes to vegetable material, no to meat since it may attract unwanted wild animal attention. It suggests experimenting with composting in a glass jar. I did not try this but it seems an interesting idea. The rest of the material on composting is consistent with my long experience in having compost piles that turn into humus very useful for gardening. . . .The other book, Three Cheers for Trees, discusses our carbon footprint, including why we call it that, and has suggestions for reducing it, celebrating the importance of trees in the carbon cycle. Mentioned are reuse of material goods and recycling of items not reusable and substituting walking or bicycling for mechanized transit." - Science Books & Films
