Robert the Recycling Robot came into fruition as the author was working on her master's degree in education during her Art and Vis...ual Inquiry class. The major visual art project was to write and illustrate a children's picture book addressing an issue of your choice from a variety of topics. The colorful red character "Robert" was created for children to follow as they read teaching them simple steps to recycle, utilizing the 3R's (reuse, reduce, and recycle). One of the main criteria's' were to have original artwork and story line, consistent style, and effective and attractive presentation. During the class the author was exposed to the style of Eric Carle's book that attracted some of her art techniques. During the author's research it was discovered it was literature for adults to read, but little for children that would allow them to visually see and understand the importance of recycling. The author hopes this whimsical character will make such an impression on children that they will want to commit and assist in saving the environment in their childhood, and not wait until they are adults to begin the recycling process. This is Volume I of future translation into diverse languages, because recycling is globally worldwide. "Robert the Recycling Robot" will be traveling into various areas to encourage the community worldwide, and students in public and private venues to recycle. read more
