Guided by Kevin the Cockroach, children learn about all aspects of rubbish creation and removal in New Zealand. The Book contains lots of activities such as how to make a rubbish audit at home or in the classroom, how to make a worm bin (and why you'd want to), and how to reduce rubbish. There's also a quiz for kids to try out after they've read the book.
