A book to explain HIV to children is desperately needed. I understand that Brenda was written about a specific child who encountered opposition when she went to school, but the European setting and white adoptive parents make this book less useful in Africa than it could be. The illustrations are wonderful. The text is more telling and explaining than actual story. I recommend it with reservations because I wish there were something better.
