ABOUT THE BOOK: Presented in English and Spanish, Better than New: A Recycle Tale / Mejor que Nuevo: Un cuenta de reciclaje follows two Chilean children who encounter a sea lion tangled in an abandoned fishing net. They free their ocean friend and consider what to do with the net. With the help of a bird, they recycle it into something useful again, something better than new. The story opens young readers’ eyes to the issue of plastic pollution in the ocean and challenges them to help the planet by making good choices and taking action.
