My Little Plastic Bag tells the story of a little girl, Amy, who throws a plastic bag "away." It follows the plastic through the ecosystem until it comes back home in the fish that her family eats. Plastic in our water is now epidemic and one United Nations report says almost every square mile of the ocean contains 46,000 pieces of plastic and most are so small we can't see them. This plastic is ingested by the fish and other wildlife and that leads to the plastic chemicals getting into our food supply. My LIttle Plastic Bag will be perfect for reading to children ages 4 to 8 to educate them on two important ecological concepts: 1. There is no "away." 2. There are cycles in nature. Any child who is curious about nature and science will enjoy My Little Plastic Bag. This book gives teachers and parents a great teaching tool to build awareness of environmental stewardship. After all, the future belongs to our children. "It's important that children learn that plastic pollution is one of the most serious threats facing our natural world. My Little Plastic Bag helps kids understand how even a harmless action like throwing away a plastic bag can have serious consequences." --Diane MacEachern, Publisher, "As a Riverkeeper I believe this book can be a valuable tool for teaching young people about the problems plastic trash creates in our aquatic environment." --Travis Graves, Lower Neuse Riverkeeper.
