The Trash to Treasure Series latest book "The Bicycle Fence" by Tom Noll is fun, informative, and insightful. The importance of recycling and taking care of our planet is progressively becoming foremost on people's priorities. Recycling for a while now has been an integral part of helping to save our planet. This book shows children a great way that they too can help save their planet by reusing and recycling.

LT is a little boy that comes from a family that lives a green lifestyle. LT is a smart and resourceful boy. he promotes going green and rides his bicycle to school. When he needs a new bike LT's day doesn't think twice about going to the local junkyard Recycleville to find a bike for LT, like his dad's truck. LT is worried that his bike will be rainbow colored like his dad's truck that everyone calls the junkyard truck. LT doesn't want to have a bike deemed the junkyard bike, in this cute and smart book, LT tries to find a way to solve his problem.

I would definitely recommend this book for young learners, I think it is a fun way to learn about the benefits of recycling and how you can use recycled products. The illustrations were bold and beautifully done.. I enjoyed the story from beginning to end. I would absolutely use this book in the classroom during lessons about recycling, and helping to save our planet.
