The New York Times book review’s 2010 pick for best illustrated children’s book is Here Comes the Garbage Barge! by Jonah Winter, illustrated by Red Nose Studio and published by Schwartz & Wade Books.
The Times’ 2010 holiday gift guide slide show text efficiently sums the book up as “The story of a barge carrying 3,168 tons of garbage that couldn’t find a home — and how its ill-fated journey helped usher in the recycling era.” Can’t wait to read it. Here’s a link to the longer review with more on that true story, which we’ve mentioned here before.
