    2.

    3. Don't think it strange that I loved this book. I did! It was informative, entertaining, illuminating, and quite frankly brilliant. Who knew that waste could be explored so creatively? I certainly didn't. I'm so glad that I was given a chance to review this title. This is the type of book that I would add to my keeper shelf in my home library. I see so many ways of using it with my family for educational purposes. I think anyone who reads this will raise their level of consciousness about waste a [...]


    4. This was an interesting read. It is very comprehensive but still fun. Plus the little info,bits are great. I will forever remember what “pure” is. I love that the book is based on two questions: what is garbage, and what is “away”. The this books sets out to answer those questions. A great book for all library collections.


    5. Garbage has always been produced by humans - though the amount of it is defnitely going up in modern times! Archaeologists look at the garbage left by prehistoric civilizations to better understand how the lived, and some day the same may be done by future scientists trying to understand more about our generation.Different sources of garbage are discussed in detail - including food waste, industrial waste, plastic waste, and the issue of old electronics. Issues with landfills and dumps are discu [...]


    6. Finally someone wrote a book about a question that I had for a long time! The language is super accessible and easy for kids. The amount of research involved is amazing! The illustrations are beautiful. I particularly like that each chapter is divided into small "articles", it makes it for a lighter read, not too heavy on the scientific aspects. It also presents day-to-day examples of how garbage surrounds us all. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing an advance copy of this book.


    7. This book is so informational and well written. Where our garbage goes, however, is a very deep issue to think about. We recycle and are thoughtful about reducing our footprint but I ultimately had to stop reading the book, it was making me dwell on the issue and have a grim outlook on my children's future and their potential children.


    8. Comprehensive and kid-friendly treatment of the subject of waste including past, present and future. It is also filled with stories of people/nations that are making a difference to address this important but often hidden issue.


    9. This book was SUPER informative for the size - only 77 pages. I learned so much and it really opened up my eyes to the scary amount of waste in this world - but it also offered a lot of solutions or ways to greatly reduce or greatly reuse waste.
