October 2020: Celebrating Children’s Environmental Health Day

We celebrated Children’s Environmental Health Day with the release of “Climate Change and Your Neighborhood,” the second book in the Healthy World, Healthy You storybook series. Isabella and her younger brother Joel explore the intersection of health and the environment and what they can do to protect their own health and that of their friends and neighbors. In the newest book, the duo team up with their grandmother to educate and motivate their community to take steps to make the neighborhood a healthier place.
