Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Sydney and Simon Go Green!
Author: Paul A Reynolds
Illustrator: Peter H Reynolds
Published: October 13th, 2015
The book tells how the twins, Sydney and Simon, discover that trash is endangering animals so they decide to investigate. They are very worried when they learn just how much rubbish is being disposed of as trash and set out to help encourage everyone to recycle, reduce and reuse – including writing a song about it. You’ll just have to read the story to find out what happens!
This is a beautifully illustrated, inspiring story that will hopefully help raise awareness of the impact of everyone’s rubbish on the environment. The characters are engaging and great role models. It is written in an easy to relate to, enjoyable manner with short chapters and superb pictures to enhance the understanding of readers but the vocabulary used makes it for more able readers. Whilst it is great as a story, it could also be used by parents and educators to inspire children to be more aware of how they can produce less rubbish and care for their environment. By the way, according to the blurb at the end of the story, the author and illustrator of this book are twins, too! Highly recommended!
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This book won’t be available until October but I thought it worth sharing information about it already!
