ABC book with simple facts and ideas for every letter of the alphabet. Another section has a detailed history or fact lesson for older children or adults. This book will appeal to several age groups. For example, it takes hundreds of years for a polystyrene cup to decompose and a typical meal in US travels 22,000 miles to reach you plate.
