Compost Stew - Teach Your Kids About Composting! - Review & Giveaway

Composting is a great way to reduce our waste and actually re-use our discarded waste to benefit our garden AND the planet.  Your kids can get a primer on how to compost with the new book Compost Stew, written by Mary McKenna Siddals and illustrated by Ashley Wolff. The engaging poem and fascinating collage-style illustrations are sure to get your kid so interested in composting that you might have to prevent them from pulling the GOOD veggies out of the fridge!

From the publisher (Tricycle Press, an imprint of Random House Children's Books):

Apple cores
Bananas, bruised
Coffee grounds with filters, used
Just add to the pot
and let it all rot
into Compost Stew!

From eggshells to wiggly worms, this delightful recipe in bouncy verse features items—some familiar and some not so—that are fit for the home compost bin and will nourish Mother Earth. Vibrant collage illustrations use recycled and found materials to further a timely message. And to keep young environmental chefs fully informed about compostingdo’s and don’ts, there’s a note in the back about what’s not fit for the bin.
