The Malik and FriendsTM children’s book series is targeted to kids ages 3 to 8 and teaches them about different parts of the world, global issues, friendship, and problem-solving. Global issues tackled in the series include malaria, water conservation and sanitation, and natural disasters. Children are encouraged to volunteer in their local communities to address global concerns. Malik and FriendsTM teaches young children to be global citizens.

Read Malik and the Malaria-Carrying Mosquito, and learn how he responds to a request from his friend François to help prevent mosquitoes from infecting children in Burkina Faso.

And don't forget, Malik says, "Turn off the water!" in which he travels to Australia to help his friend Catryna promote water conservation and sanitation.
