Description
Every day, in every city, in every town, in every neighborhood you know, more than 3,000 teenagers smoke their first cigarette. Maybe you’re curious what smoking is all about. What it feels like, what it tastes like, if you would look cool if you smoked too. Cool KAT Kitty is here to share the real-deal about smoking and tobacco. What it is, and what it isn’t… This entertaining and educational book explores the mindset of kids and why they might be tempted to smoke. It goes beyond the typical "smoking is bad for you" message, and looks at how peer pressure, media influence, and marketing tactics by tobacco companies are all designed to make tobacco products attractive to kids. This book hits the right balance of being interesting and factual without "talking down" to kids or over-simplifying the message. This book addresses the dangers of nicotine, the "4 Lies Tobacco companies want you to believe", and the current trends in the tobacco industry - including e-cigarettes. Written for grades 3 - 7. Ideal for educators, home-schoolers, parents, and D.A.R.E. program coordinators looking for an engaging, age-appropriate resource to help prevent kids from ever picking up that first cigarette.
