Being green means recycling, which is important for our planet. Elmo knows that and so does his friend Oscar the Grouch, who has always been green, in every way. Oscar loves trash, and he loves to reuse it! As everyone's favorite grouch shows his Sesame Street friends (including Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, and Zoe) how to be more eco-friendly, he proves that he's the greenest of green.

This sturdy board book has a large lift-the-flap on the last page that gives readers a peek into Oscar's can, which turns out to be a lot bigger than it looks from the outside!
