Om Matthew and the Horrid Haze
Matthew, like other young children, loves to play outdoors. But when the regions annual hazepollutive smog at its worstcomes around, Matthew is forced to stay indoors. Ever curious, he asks, Why cant I see the sky? In this delightful childrens story, Wind blames the burning Trees in the forests. Trees, in turn, blame the tinderbox-like Peat soil, which in turn points the finger at Man, who says he needs fertile soil to grow his crops. Finally, Matthew asks, How can we get back clearer days? The included suggested questions enable adults to use the storyline to help children find out more and to appreciate the urgency of sustaining this precious Earth. One reviewer says (Ms Felicia Choon, a primary school teacher), I wished that the children who read this book can be empowered with the knowledge that they make a difference in their own small ways. If I were to read this book in class, it would definitely pathed its way into a lengthy discussion on what we can do here to help with the situation there. This is the third book in the Matthew series. The other two, also published by Partridge, are Matthew and the Thirsty Sun and Matthews Stacking Cups.
