Ouch & Moo - Children's book for Plastic Awareness
Children in India need to understand how important it is to reduce our dependence on plastic, on all fronts. When a plastic bag has eyes, whatever can that mean? It means it is alive, it is not inert. It oozes, changes, and interacts with the world. This set of books comes with lots of activities which the child can do. It's also a great gift to give for that child in your life who's curious and interested in learning about the world we live in.

These books on Plastic Bags bring to focus the menace of this everyday material. While all plastic is not bad, we have reached a stage where it threatens to eat into our guts like in the case of the poor cows in these books. Materials have a life, and we must help our children become aware of their advantages and disadvantages from a very young age. This will enable them to make informed choices as they grow and begin to make decisions. These books help children understand the concept of manmade objects and natural things. It also includes some concrete steps that a child can take in her daily routine to build the habit of reducing, reusing and recycling. Both the Red Ouch and Moo book and its companion, the Yellow Ouch and Moo book address the plastic bag issue at different levels of complexity. It is like reading two versions of a Birbal story at the same time. We believe that this fosters a sense of perspective and inquiry, so necessary to understand the complete story. Both the books are illustrated in different styles, again a way to encourage different ways of seeing!
These books are an important investment to make in developing in your child an appreciation of her environment and an awareness of how to live in it as an informed, responsible citizen.
