A Planet Full of Plastic: and how you can help (Paperback)Neal Layton (author)
The perfect introduction to the scourge of plastic for younger readers, Neal Layton’s brightly illustrated book explains the science behind why plastic does not biodegrade and what the consequences are for the planet, as well as offering countless ideas for how we can all help ease the crisis.
Everything is made of stuff. Some things are made of paper, like this book. And some things are made of PLASTIC. If you look around you, plastic is everywhere. Even in places where it's not meant to be. If it drops to the ground, it doesn't rot away - it sticks around for ever.
Our world is drowning in plastic, and it's a big problem. Award-winning author-illustrator Neal Layton is here to explain where plastic comes from, why it doesn't biodegrade, and why that's dangerous for animals and humans alike. But he's also FULL of ideas for how you can help! From giving up straws in juice cartons to recycling all we can and taking part in a beach clean, A Planet Full of Plastic will get young readers excited about how they can make a difference to keep Planet Earth happy.
This brilliant non-fiction picture book, illustrated in Neal's trademark collage style, is perfect for readers aged 4-7 who love nature and want to help the environment.
