Here Comes the Garbage Barge! by Jonah WinterThis New York Times Best Illustrated Book is a mostly true and completely stinky story that is sure to make you say, “Pee-yew!” Teaching environmental awareness has become a national priority, and this hilarious book (subtly) drives home the message that we can’t produce unlimited trash without consequences.
Before everyone recycled . . .
There was a town that had 3,168 tons of garbage and nowhere to put it.
What did they do?
Enter the Garbage Barge!
Amazing art built out of junk, toys, and found objects by Red Nose Studio makes this the perfect book for Earth Day or any day, and photos on the back side of the jacket show how the art was created.

This is a great lesson to show what happens to our trash. The book does a wonderful job illustrating the point of how bad trash pollution is. I think it's so important for kids to understand where something goes when we throw it "away"! Thanks for hosting the Storybook Science series again. So fun! I am doing this project for my science class, I totally loved the idea!
