Summary: Brightly colored photographs illustrate the simple text describing how air is all around us and necessary for all kinds of life. The last several pages talk about how dirty air is unhealthy, and makes several kid-friendly suggestions (ride bikes and walk more, turn out the lights) to help clean up polluted air. The final two pages have six questions, such as “What is air?” and “Why is clean air so important?” with a few paragraphs of information on each topic. 40 pages; ages 4-8.
Pros: A simple and beautifully illustrated introduction to the importance of clean air in our lives.
Cons: Trying to answer the question “What is climate change, and how is it connected to air pollution?” in two paragraphs seems overly ambitious.
