Synopsis

Diseases Defeated by Violet Mugisa, Anise Waljee, Colette Hawes

Each book has been written by an experienced educationalist 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 Readers can be used as an integral part of a primary Science, Social Studies, Environmental Science, Home Economics or Health Science curriculum. This story shows how most diseases can be defeated if mothers and children are vaccinated or immunised at the right time. The children from Kampala Primary School in Uganda made up a play about a meeting of killer diseases, in which the main topic of discussion is how to combat the threat posed to the diseases by WHO, Unicef and Child to Child. Their play forms the basis of this Reader.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
