Want to teach your little ones about recycling?  Try introducing them to a new website and book called Colonel Trash Truck.  Written by Kathleen Crawley, Colonel Trash Truck teaches kids about the importance of going green and the role that even young children can play in protecting the planet.  Colonel Trash Truck uses humor instead of fear or guilt, so its perfect for 3 to 6 year olds that are concerned about the planet but not quite ready to hear the in-depth details about potential eco-perils.  Check out the video below:
