Mr. King’s Things is a fun read for everyone!
Mr. King likes new things. When his stuff gets the slightest bit old, he just tosses it into the pond. But when a pond monster frightens Mr. King, he must think of new ways to deal with old messes — with delightful results!
This adorable book about Mr. King teaches kids about reusing and recycling their slightly used things rather than just throwing them away and replacing them with new ones.
In the begging Mr.King liked to toss out his old things in favor of new ones, until he discovers recycling with a little help from his friends. He discovered that his old things can still be fun if he starts using them in a different way. And if he really can’t find a good use for them there is always someone else who could.
