Wonderful book for children 7 years of age and up, who are ready for expanded vocabulary. Great glossary for learning to use new words in context. I enjoyed this story.

Tru dat rat. Ok, so if you don’t have kids or hang out with kids, you may not have any idea what I just said. But the three green rat brothers of Tintown’s Broken Bottle Lane encourage us to walk softly and reduce, reuse and recycle. This rat tale is both fun and educational and the perfect book to review on Earth Day (April 22, 2014).

This adorable tale reminds children to respect and nurture the planet they inhabit so it's here for as long as they are and beyond. The rats are charming characters who, though different than the other town residents, prove to be smarter and more resourceful than most. The story conveys a weighty message in a delightfully fun and entertaining way. I am currently reading it to my daughter's third grade class!

A cute children's book with an important message about our earth. I bought this for a gift, but will be keeping one for me and getting another. It's fairly well written, and I think kids will really enjoy the idea of rats living in their own cities just like we do!
