With cell models, Slim shows how the immune system protects the body. By weakening the immune system, AIDS “opens the door” to germs. Intimate sexual contact, passing infected blood between people, or sharing infected needles can spread the virus. Slim encourages talking with parents about sex—“the way babies are created.” He assures children that shots from their doctor are safe and that they can’t get AIDS from clothes, telephones, toilets, sneezes, mosquitoes, or from sitting next to or hugging an infected friend. He urges them to use their power to make healthy choices. Previewing is strongly recommended.
