I Can Do it Too by Anise Waljee, Colette Hawes

Each book has been written by an experienced educationalists in conjunction with a panel of medical and language specialists. The books have been graded into three reading levels, and each deals with a different health topic of relevance to children in Africa. The Reader can be used as an integral part of a primary Science, Social Studies, Environmental Science, Home Economics or Health Science curriculum. This Reader tells the stories of three children- Ali, Aminah and Peter- who have one thing in common: they all have a physical handicap, which they learn to accommodate with the help and support of other children. I Can Do It Too is different from other Readers in the Child-to-Child series in that it addresses the issue of attitudes to handicap. Future Readers may explore this area.
