The Child to Child Resource Book

The Child to Child Resource Book is one of the most widely used Child to Child publications. Its popularity led it to be translated and adapted into 31 languages.

This Resource Book targets practitioners, trainers, advocates of children’s participation and others. It contains Activity Sheets, which are designed to serve as a model for them to adapt and create materials that suit the context and realities specific to the countries in which they work. The process of adapting, improving and creating materials is an important vehicle through which we can deliver quality health education that encourages meaningful children’s participation in health and development. We hope this book is a valuable step in making the goal of delivering quality health education a reality for the world’s children.

The book is divided in nine parts: Book

1. Child growth and development; 2. Nutrition; 3. Personal and community hygiene; 4. Safety; 5. Recognising and helping children with disabilities; 6. Prevention and cure of disease; 7. Safe lifestyles; 8. Children in difficult circumstances; and 9. Living and coping with HIV and AIDS.
