Loveable Charlie and Lola decide to take a grip on their rubbish. But they are not just going to throw it away. Instead, they decide to recycle it. As they set about paper, plastic, cans and the rest, Charlie explains to Lola how recycling can save trees. Soon Lola is sharing with her friends the value of recycling…Full of important information within an attractive story format.

The Lovereading comment:

The perfect book to develop the youngest toddlers into caring for the planet and who better to teach them than the irresistible comic duo of Charlie and Lola.


Charlie and Lola: Look After Your Planet by Lauren Child

Charlie has this little sister Lola. At the moment Lola is throwing everything away. “Why don’t you recycle it?” says Charlie. And Lola says, “Recycle it? What is that?” You can do recycling just like Lola and then fill in your very own completely good tree counter poster!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
