A Recycled Christmas by Heather Payer-Smith

Where do all the unwanted toys really go? Unfortunately, there is no island of misfit toys, so discarded toys all end up in one place – THE DUMP. Santa and the elves are hard at work preparing new toys for Christmas... that is until Santa sees that children are throwing all their old toys away to make room for bigger, better presents! Saddened that perfectly good toys are being thrown in the trash, Santa decides to take action to save the toys and recycle them for children who are less fortunate. “A Recycled Christmas” is a fresh approach to traditional Christmas stories that not only educates, but entertains children while providing a memorable holiday tale.
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)

My Thoughts:
This an adorable children's book. It's not your average children's Christmas story, because it teaches a lesson as well as entertains. It teaches children that they shouldn't be greedy and selfish. The children should donate their toys to the less fortunate and make someone else have a great Christmas, instead of just throwing them out where no one can enjoy them. The illustrations in A Recycled Christmas are adorable. I especially like the illustration where the elves find out children have been throwing their toys away and have the gapind mouths. Altogether, this is a perfect Christmas story if you want a message along with a story.

I give A Recycled Christmas: 4/5.
