Synopsis

Freda Doesn't Get Pregnant by Hugh Hawes, 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. Freda Doesn't Get Pregnant is a Level 3 reader which tells the story of a 13-year-old girl who thinks she is old enough to start a sexual relationship. The boy she has chosen is already a father, although he refuses to accept responsibility for his child. Freda's guardians are too busy with their own lives to think about her welfare, and so it is left to her brother and sister to think about her future - a future that would be ruined if she became pregnant. 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.
