This is a decent introduction to recycling for younger children. A group of 3-5 year old children that I read this to thought that Tika was funny and wanted to see her recycled into a medicine bottle. However, they also knew that the recycling process wasn't just magic like the end of the book suggests.
The book emphasizes that jars and other household recyclables want to be recycled so they can be made into something else that helps us. Other than that, though, there isn't much information on why we should recycle, how the recycling process actually happens or exactly why it helps us or the Earth.
