Synopsis

The Cholera Crisis by Donna Bailey

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 book deals with a different health topic of relevance to children in Africa. The Cholera Crisis is a Level 3 reader which tells the story of an outbreak of cholera that turns into an epidemic. The children in the story often know more about cholera than the adults and through them we learn how an epidemic could have been prevented by good hygiene, adequate, clean water supplies and proper nutrition. They also show how to recognise and treat the early symptoms of cholera. The emphasis of the book is on proper education on such vital health matter, from an early age, through schools and health centres. The readers can be used as an integral part of a primary Science, Social Studies, Environmental Science, Home Economics or Health Science curriculum. They can also be used in language lessons.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
