Environmental Health Narratives A Reader for Youth by Peter J. Brown

Andrew woke up with a guinea worm coming out of his foot as a result of drinking unsafe water a year previously. Anjali awoke with a cough because smoke from kilns filled her dilapidated home.Tyler stayed home from school because he had a stomachache from eating bad beef.What are the links between the environments in which these young people live and their health problems?The stories, most set in poor communities, draw attention to the effects of air, water, food, climate, urbanization, and other human impacts on health. A comprehensive teaching guide provides a context from which readers can explore problems and solutions in environmental health.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
