by Barbara Christie-Dever and Marcie Ramsey (Illustrator)

Reading Level: Ages 9-12
Paperback, 64 pages
Published by Learning Works
Publication date: March 1996
ISBN: 0881602868


An informative and potentially life-saving book for middle school students about HIV and AIDS. The author has a similar book targeted at high school students titled AIDS: What Teens Need To Know.

The author uses an easy-to-understand question and answer format that is age-appropriate and straightforward. It includes essential facts about the risks and dangers of infection.

The focus is on prevention by building self-respect and ability to make responsible sexual choices. Educators considering the book for class use will find suggestions for extended activities to develop skills in saying "no" and to increase awareness. The book would be a good addition to sex education and AIDS prevention programs targeted at middle school students.

The book is reasonably-priced for group use.
