From toys to shopping bags, disposable dishes to garden furniture, drink bottles to hair accessories... plastic is everywhere. How is this versatile material produced? It's a rather long and complicated process, but Menucha Fuchs, in her inimitable style, breaks it all down into clear and easy-to-understand steps. And of course, a book about plastics would be incomplete without a discussion on recycling.
Kids are naturally curious about the world around them, and the books in the Living & Learning Encyclopedia series are the perfect way to answer their questions about everyday foods and materials. Each book teaches the history, science and technology behind the topic in the title in an unusually clear and engaging manner. In addition to the delightful illustrations, the books feature a unique, fun-to-read style where the words themselves are pictures, too! Sure to be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
