The Adventures of Planetman: The Case of the Plastic Rings, by Karen Cioffi and illustrated by Thomas Deisboeck, is a compelling blend of adventure and factual information, suited for children 6-8, which sends an important message to children about ways they can help our planet.  
Thomas hears a noise coming from outside. He and his buds Nick and Luke come to the rescue and the three superheroes save the day. After the story, children will enjoy learning about the peregrine falcon, facts about solid waste materials, what readers can do to reduce waste, ways to help our planet, and more. The book is an excellent resource to teach childrenmethods of conservation for parents, teachers, and librarians. And good news, there are more Planetman books to come!

It was a joy for me to review Karen's first Planetman adventure. Luckily, there will be more Planetman books, as I think children will enjoy the stories and also learn a lot. In The Case of the Plastic Rings, young children will learn ways that they can get involved in helping the environment, and learn lifelong lessons about respecting our planet. So very important, especially introducing these concepts at such an early age, a window which will hopefully stay open for the rest of their lives.
