Life of a Plastic Bag by Ayla Flaxman

My name is Ayla Flaxman. I am in 7th grade at Horizon K8 School in Boulder, Colorado. For my learning challenge project I wanted to make sure that I informed others about this issue of ocean pollution. But I wanted to make it a gentle approach. So I wrote and illustrated this book. Please enjoy. I appreciated being able to work with Inside the Greenhouse, and especially consulting with author Max Boykoff, on how to write a book!
