Teaching Children about Air Pollution


Wings and Thingamajigs E- Book(21 page pdf, Halton Region, September, 2012)

Also discussed here: Wings and Thingamajigs – Children’s Picture Book(Halton Region)

Today we review a rare and exceptionally well-illustrated picture book, aimed at teaching children from 4 to 8 years old about air quality and climate change. It comes from Public Health in Halton Region, one of the more advanced  in the province of Ontario, when it comes to improving air quality and its impacts on human health– one of the first in Canada to use roadside air quality monitors, for example.The e-book is available free in a number of languages including French, Spanish, Cantonese, Polish and Punjabi, to meet the needs of the diverse multicultural community in southwestern Ontario (and for some in the rest of the world). Highly recommended!

  1. Thank you for the review of Wings and Thingamajigs and the kudos for the work that we do here in Halton on air quality and climate change. It’s encouraging to know we are reaching such a broad audience. Be sure to check out book one as well, A Farewell to Featherwagaons at http://www.halton.ca/featherwagons. Stay tuned as book three will be available in June 2013! Thanks again for the feature on your site, keep up the good work. All the best, B. Jas
