Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-5--Forbes has done a good job of presenting the essential facts in this low-key, readable book. AIDS is described as a serious illness communicated by unsafe sex or by sharing unclean needles; there is no further discussion of transmission. The focus is on living with the disease and understanding that casual contact with AIDS or HIV-infected individuals is not dangerous. Emphasis on accepting rather than fearing AIDS sufferers is reinforced by numerous illustrations: large full-color photographs show infected and uninfected individuals engaging in everyday activities. Some words are bolded in the text and followed by pronunciation guides; they are defined in the glossary. A solid choice for libraries needing AIDS information on a low reading level.
