Yvonne Osborne

Yvonne Osborne has worked with young children throughout the years.  She believes in teaching them about the importance of recycling and protecting the environment.


Scott Osborne


Scott Osborne worked for the city sanitation department for many years.  During the course of his career, he noticed that the volume of trash was quickly surpassing the capacity of the landfill. 

The Osbornes want to send a lasting message to children everywhere about the importance of preserving our natural resources. This is their first book and is dedicated to their two amazing children.
