This engaging pop-up book, for children aged 7-12, investigates how we make some everyday products, and asks how we could make them differently by incorporating circular economy thinking.






How We Make Stuff has won The English Association’s 2013 Picture Book Award 4-11 in the non-fiction category 7-11! Click here to find out more.
