Better than New: A Recycle Tale by Robert Broder and illustrated by Lake Buckley, discusses the dangers of ocean pollution, the benefits of recycling, and what children can do to help heal the Earth.
“Will You Help Me?”
Isidora and Julian, playing in the Chilean ocean, hear a plaintive cry—a sea lion is tangled in an abandoned fishing net. They free their ocean friend then consider what to do with the net. With the help of a bird building its nest, they recycle it into something useful again, something better than new.
Presented in both English and Spanish, Better Than New: A Recycle Tale/Mejor que Nuevo: Un cuenta de reciclaje is an inspiring story that presents children with a problem and shows how they find the solution, while teaching about the dangers of ocean pollution and encouraging a healthy relationship with the natural world.
