To celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week, TMA Bucks’ project coordinator Ashley Sulon was the special guest reader at Pearl S. Buck Elementary School in the Neshaminy School District. She read the children’s book Why is Coco Orange? to all first-grade classes.

Why is Coco Orange? is the story of a chameleon, but he can’t change colors, and his asthma is acting up. Coco and his friends at Lizard Lick Elementary solve this mystery as they learn about air quality and how to stay healthy when the air quality is bad.

Children also received coloring books and activity sheets that focus on keeping our air clean.

According to the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, children are at risk due to air pollution for several reasons. They spend more time outdoors, their lungs are still developing, and they breathe more air per pound of bodyweight than adults. Children not only have greater exposure to pollutants like ozone and particle pollution, but those pollutants can exert greater impacts on developing lungs.
