Dear Mums (or dads),

At what age do you think is appropriate to introduce your kids about pollution? would you read a story book that's about pollution to your children?

I'm creating a storybook that introduces the topic of air pollution and the importance of it but I'm not sure if it's an appropriate age range(4-6 year old) for the topic.
I don't have any younger siblings and I've never been read to Blush so it's kind hard to grasp what kind of book children and parents prefer to read. I.e . how complex

I would really appreciate it if you can help me with this.Smile

Many thanks,

I don’t think any age is too young, done appropriately. I think something like The Lorax by Dr Seuss is a good example of a story about environmentalism geared towards young children.

Thank you for the reply! I've read the Lorax and I loved the rhymes and flow of the book! If you've got more recommendation or any feedback please let me know Grin

There’s a children’s book called Window by Jeannie Baker that deals with environmental issues. It has no words, so is suitable for a wide range of ages. It’s a great book for discussing the environment, and how it’s changing, with children.

I would buy it.

The more complex the issue, the better it is if you can make it so children can understand it.

Ronnie the red eyed tree frog is about deforestation and has a good story, plus not too depressing.

I think it's a good idea, but needs to have an uplifting and hopeful message to it to actually inspire children.
