  • By Jo heritage on 15 March 2014

    Beautiful art work in this book gives younger children a creative and enticing introduction to the great man's like.The text is very short....but my two girls 8 and 6 loved it, and proudly took it to school to show their friends.

    A book that is very easy to read and understand that is aimed at introducing young kids to Nelson Mandela. The pages have lots of illustration and very few words. A very inspirational story indeed.
