Annotation: Earth Day is on the way, and Ryan, Luke, and Carly have a plan. If they manage to collect and recycle 5,000 aluminum cans, they can make enough money to buy some beautiful flowers for nearby Gilroy Park.

CAN they do it?

Counting the cans gives Ryan, Luke, and Carly -- along with readers -- a lesson in place value. And facts about recycling throughout the story will help readers understand how important it is to take care of the earth.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2004 Fall)
These books cover elementary math concepts: place value, capacity (or volume), and numbers one through one hundred on a number line. The stories—about a club that recycles cans, birds searching for the right-size home, students doing "cool" things for the first hundred days of school—make the concepts palatable, while the cartoony color art adds energy. Suggested activities conclude each book.
