Synopsis

Rainbow Reading Level 5 - Landscape: The Message Box D by Lesley Beake

This touching story traces the life story of a boy from his rural beginnings in Mpumalanga, through the path of his life, to the present day when he returns to the place of his birth. As a young boy, he leaves his family home to go and look after his ageing uncle. He leaves behind everything that he loves and goes to an unfamiliar environment. He moves from rural Mpumalanga to a township setting. He is educated at a school there. He joins the struggle before going to university overseas. Finally, he flies back to his country. His brother fetches him at the airport to take him back home, where he meets his father who is now an old man.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
