" Read this book to my 1st graders this year in honor of earth day. The book is a little choppy in it's narrative and having the story of recycling in a side bar on the right side is a bit confusing. " said.

" Students are about to learn about two topics at once. They are able to see first hand that recyclying cardboard boxes can make books, paper, and so much more. Then it so happens that this book that has been recycled is about polar bears!!!! Great book for 3rd graders learning able recycling. " said.

" I forgot to list this book, but we read it at practicum and the students really enjoyed this book. They talked about how they knew this book was nonfiction. The kids liked hearing this book about polar bears and recycling. I would also have my students talk about how they knew the book was nonfiction. We would talk about how recycling can help the polar bears as well as the planet. I would read this for Earth Day. This could lead to a donation drive for the zoo. " said.

"I've read a handful of metafiction but I thinkOnce I was a Cardboard Box, Now I'm a Book About Polar Bears by Anton Poitier is the first meta-nonfiction I've read. It is exactly about what the title says it is.

The book is a picture book with parallel information running in two columns. The first column which takes up two thirds of the page contains facts about polar bears and how the melting arctic ice is impacting their survival. The remaining third of the page goes through the timeline of recycling a box and printing a book.

The book itself has no plastic and unbleached paper pages, meaning they are a light brown. It's nice to see that the book is what it claims.

My son recommended the book to me.

" Great nonfiction book for elementary age. I was able to read the whole thing to a kindergarten class which can be hard to do with a nonfiction book. It had a healthy mix of photographs and drawings to keep the students interested. " said.

" More informative about polar bears than about recycling. Contains many of the text features we teach when studying non-fiction: bold, bulleted lists, captions, map, labels. A fine additional resource for the annual animal research projects. " said.

" Cute and great for lessons for kids on recycling! " said.

" I loved this book because it not only taught me fun facts about polar bears but also taught me about how the book was made and encouraged me to recycle. " said.
