Jimmie Boogie Learns about Smoking.
This children's book tells the story of Jimmie Boogie's experience when he is offered cigarettes by two other boys on the playground at his school. His older sister, Suzzie, interrupts the interaction and explains to Jimmie that smoking is addictive. Their conversation causes Jimmie to think about smoking, and he decides that it is something he does not want to do. This book can be used in the classroom and other settings in order to teach children about the dangers of smoking. It can be especially useful for parents or other family members who want to discuss smoking with young children. Four questions are provided to initiate discussion. The questions are: (1) What would you do if someone asked you to smoke a cigarette? (2) Do you know what an addiction is? (3) How can you keep from becoming addicted to cigarettes? (4) Does a person look cool when they're smoking cigarettes? (MKA)
