This is a cool book about reusing object. This would be fun to use in a homec class or just to teach kids about reusing things. This is a book about an old man who reuses his coat until its all gone.

I think this book is for intermediate and primary students. It is a poetry book about an old lady who is swallowing animals in the hopes that they will swallow the animal she ate before. then she dies after eating a horse.
