My 3 year old son really enjoyed this book. He loves garbage and recycling, and he loves maps and learning about other countries. This book combined both for him. He was really fascinated with the illustrations - which were beautifully done. And, the story was well written - without being preachy. I could see my son develop genuine concern for the goats (who were getting sick from the garbage), and he has been talking about helping the animals around our home ever since reading the story. It's engaging story that helped lead to discussions about different cultures, recycling, problem solving, and courage to do something even when other's laugh at you. Would highly recommend to parents and teachers.

Lovely introduction on plastic for children. Nice message and the story is real. An example how one person can make a real difference.
