Mayer, G & M. (1993). Just A Gum Wrapper. Wisconsin: Western Publishing Company.

Illustrated by Gina and Mercer Mayer

Just A Gum Wrapper follows Little Critter and his family as they learn different ways that they can help the Earth.

This book is intended for children ages 3-7 but I think it would be better used if read to children ages 5-9. The story would have more meaning and the students could give their own ideas of how to recycle and use other methods that can help the Earth, and then perhaps apply them at home as a small project.
