“Imagine what the world would look like if
everybody dumped their garbage and nobody cleaned up after themselves.”
“There’d be PILES OF PAPER!” the Garbage Lady boomed.
“TOWERS OF TIN CANS!”
“PYRAMIDS OF PLASTIC!”
“STACKS OF STYROFOAM!”
Sandy does not like it when people put garbage on the beach. When she meets
the Garbage Lady, she learns some important lessons about being green!
Sandy’s Incredible Shrinking Footprint is a simple, sweet read for
budding little environmentalists. I ADORED the illustrations, which were
simple yet interesting. I had lots of fun trying to guess what type of
materials Adrianna Steele-Card used in the illustrations. The characters
were cute and interesting, and this story is a great read-to-me book or
Femida Handy is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. She and
Carole Carpenter worked together to create Sandy’s Incredible Shrinking
Footprint. Carole Carpenter is a Professor of Humanities and Coordinator of
Children’s Studies. Adrianna Steele-card illustrated this entire book with
recycled and natural materials. WOW!
I give Sandy’s Incredible Shrinking Footprint four stars.
