Apple cores, Bananas, bruised, Coffee grounds with filters, used. Just add to the pot, and let it all rot into Compost Stew!
From eggshells to wiggly worms, this delightful recipe in bouncy verse features items — some familiar and some not so — that are fit for the home compost bin and will nourish Mother Earth. Every letter of the alphabet gets its own compostable item!
Vibrant collage illustrations use recycled and found materials to further a timely message. And to keep young environmental chefs fully informed about composting do's and don'ts, there's a note in the back about what's not fit for the bin. This book will inspire new respect for food scraps — and the benefits they can provide to the Earth's growing things.
"Bouncy rhymes and busy collage art zip along as everything from apple cores to zinnia heads gets tossed into a rich and rotting soil-bound mix. A potentially heavy-handed message is delivered with a light touch so that you want to start your own waste heap right away. Mission accomplished!" -- San Francisco Chronicle
