A Simple Cure by Collette Hawes, Pauletta Edwards

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. A simple Cure is a Level 2 reader which emphasises the dangers of diarrhoea in young children. The book shows children how to prevent death from diarrhoea by acting promptly and using a very simple remedy. The emphasis of the book is on proper education on such a 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.
