Not Just a Cold Level 1 Reader by Hugh Hawes, Anise Waljee, Colette Hawes


Not Just a Cold Level 1 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. Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI)-mostly in the form of pneumonia-accounts for millions of deaths in babies and young children because these illnesses have no 'simple cure'. Children need antibiotics. ARI symptoms are easily recognised, however, and if treatment is given quickly many children can be saved. In this story Andrew shows us how, when he is left in charge of his baby sister and she develops pneumonia. Fortunately, Andrew knows the signs, so he makes sure she gets antibiotics and lives.
