Series A Little Golden Book

From Trash to Treasure is a Sesame Street Little Golden Book published in 1993.

This book illustrates the many ways the residents of Sesame Street recycle. While most of the characters accomplish this the traditional way, Oscar and the other Grouches reuse garbage in typical grouch fashion. For example, while Granny Bird sews quilts from old clothing, Grundgetta thinks tattered rags themselves make great outfits.
