The Lovereading4Kids comment

Nelson Mandela’s inspirational life story has been adapted into a wonderfully child-friendly version. It tells of his childhood as an ordinary boy in a village and how his belief in democracy was already strongly developed while a student. Mandela’s fight against the government and the oppression that was apartheid, how it led to his imprisonment and how he survived the long, longs days in his cell is a story all should know. Paddy Bouma’s illustrations give a strong sense of the time and place.
