Children’s book – Leonard’s Composting Adventure

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and members of City Council are proud to launch Leonard’s Composting Adventures, a children’s storybook.

“This educational, fun, and unique book will help children and their parents learn more about the importance of composting and how they can easily take part,” stated Mayor Trudeau.

Leonard’s Composting Adventures tells the story of a young boy and his cat as they learn how to compost and protect the planet. Their new friend, Mr. Compost, teaches them how to sort waste at source properly, how waste is turned into compost, and how composting has a positive impact on the environment. Mr. Compost takes Leonard and Kitty on a journey to a delightful, funny, and zany world full of sporty vegetables, dancing fruit, and smiling micro-organisms with a big appetite!

Throughout the school year, educational workshops about waste management will be offered to elementary school children. Students in kindergarten and grades 1 and 2 will also receive a copy of the book.

“We believe developing new projects to promote environmental protection is important. This book and these workshops will help teach our children the best sustainable development practices, which will encourage good, long-lasting habits that respect the environment,” added Mayor Trudeau.

Copies of this book created by the City are available for loan at the Library and for purchase at the multiservice counter at City Hall for $5..
