Chocolate Lily Book Awards: Compost Stew

This week, the primary classes read Compost Stew: An A to Z Recipe for the Earth. We had great discussions about composting and what kinds of things can be composted, what can't and why.
Their comments about the book included:
It's a rhyming book!
It's an ABC book!
The illustrations are nice.
I like the words and the pictures.
We learned about composting.
I liked the part when they took the lid off at the end.

The students then needed to think of something from the book (there were 26 things mentioned!) or something they knew could be composted (we talked about natural, from plants, etc) and they each contributed one item to our compost stew!
