Monday is a likeable, generous and curious boy, growing up in difficult circumstances. His curiosity leads him into trouble but it also means that he finds out the truth about HIV and AIDS, and tries to help those around him. "HIV/AIDS Action Readers" aim to promote good health practice through extensive reading. They are designed to help young people to develop the knowledge, attitudes, self-esteem and skills needed to manage their relationships safely and happily, and to cope better with the crisis of HIV and AIDS, which is affecting all our communities today. "HIV/AIDS Action Readers" are suitable for use across the curriculum: in literacy, social studies and science classes as well as in after-school or community clubs.
