Christopher's Bicycle

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Christopher’s mum and dad have a surprise for him. They have fixed up an old bicycle as good as new so the young guinea pig can ride it around town. His new recycled bicycle inspires Christopher to look for more old things to recycle. With the help of sister Poppy and friend Posie he sets about finding new uses for old newspapers, stale bread and empty jars. The exciting results make the whole town want to get involved.

This is a sweet story with a strong ecological message and is sure to be a hit with children concerned about the environment. Christopher’s recycling ideas can be tested out by young readers if they follow the instructions in the pictures, and this book provides a valuable starting point for discussions about being environmentally friendly. Charlotte Middleton’s excellent mixed media illustrations really bring the story to life.
