Flies Level 2 Reader by Colette Hawes, Anise Waljee


Flies Level 2 Reader by Colette Hawes, Anise Waljee

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 Reader tries to show how children can help to improve their environment by fighting flies which carry disease. The story follows the fortunes of five evil spirits-Fever, Fury, Filth, fall and Fear-who have cooked up a recipe guaranteed to create trouble in the form of small, fast-breeding flies. One by one, they are defeated by clever children who have the power to destroy them by applying their knowledge of hygiene which they share with others.

About the Author

The authors of these stories have lived and worked in countries around the world, in India, Uganda, Nigeria and Indonesia. They have had a great deal of experience in the fields of child education and child health and are all members of the Child-to-Child programme.
