The Lovereading4Kids comment

A green message within a beautiful picture book. Loveable Charlie and Lola give all kinds of useful tips about the contribution they, and all other children, can make to looking after our planet. In Lauren Child’s witty illustrations, Charlie and Lola show how you can recycle almost everything – and what happens to the rubbish when you do so, how they can conserve energy themselves by showering instead of bathing and how they can look to the future by planting their own tree. Why not check out our Lauren Child page to see which other titles we have featured here on Lovereading4kids.


Charlie and Lola: Look After Your Planet by Lauren Child

Charlie persuades Lola that instead of throwing her things away, she should recycle them. 'Recycle it? What is that?' asks Lola. With a bit of help from Charlie, Lola learns all about recycling and how it is extremely very important to look after our planet. Soon she has found an extra-specially fun way to do more recycling.
