WHAT CAN IT BECOME?
Chores are the last thing Leo wants to do on a Saturday, so when his mother asks him to gather the recycling, he grumbles and groans. But at least it's better than helping to make lunch.
Leo transforms his simple chore into a zany adventure filled with rocket ships made out of tin cans and a mile-high stack of pizza boxes made out of recycled paper. He discovers what can become of plastic bottles, used motor oil, and even discarded food.
Will Leo finish his chore in time to meet the recycling truck? "What Can it Become?" is a story about changing and all the wonderful things that things (and people!) can become.
WHAT CAN IT BECOME? is the first-place winner of the Florida SCBWI Rising Kite award for picture books.
