Children can learn about air quality in a fun way, thanks to a new coloring book released by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. The book, “Winter in the Desert,” was designed as a tool for students to learn about air pollution and to take preventative actions and become good environmental stewards, according to a release by the department.

The book is a collaborative effort among ADEQ’s Office of Children’s Environmental Health, Maricopa County Air Quality Department and Phoenix Center for the Arts. Copies can be downloaded at azdeq.gov/ceh/download/winter_air_colorbook-web.pdf .

The Valley typically has its highest levels annually of smoke from woodburning fireplaces, stoves and chimineas during the holiday season.

“This coloring book is something fun for children to do while at the same time providing a good story that’s instructive about protecting human health and the environment,” said ADEQ Director Henry Darwin.
