Deadly Habits Level 3 Reader by Hugh Hawes, 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 is the story of how Innocent- who is anything but innocent- comes to grief, and how Sampson - Who is anything but strong - has a near brush with the law. It is told by Joe who at eleven is level-headed and quick-witted. His wry sense of humour permeates the serious health message of the dangers of smoking, heavy drinking and casual sex. Deadly Habits is at the higher language level than other Readers in the serious and is aimed at 12 to14-year-olds.
