" This excellent production to statistics focuses on the work of "Students for a Better Earth" and how they use recycling in their community... the male narrator is easily understood and important facts are written on-screen. This program features gender & racial diversity and uses a variety of formats which will keep viewers engaged: live action, animation, charts, drawings and still photos. This delightful production would be an excellent introduction to intermediate & middle school collections." - School Library Journal.
