A beautiful book for children and adults alike looking to learn a little about the life of Nelson Mandela.
Having loved other books published by Frances Lincoln, when approached by the publisher to read Grandad Mandela I decided why not! I am very glad that I did because it was such an informative read that was easy to digest.
I shamefully don’t actually know that much about Nelson Mandela and the apartheid, so this book was a really good introduction to him and what he did. Narrated in a way that’s engaging for children, Grandad Mandela is told from the perspective of his daughter and great-grandchildren as they ask their grandma questions about her father. Add to that it is beautifully illustrated throughout by Sean Qualls, and you’re on to a winner here.
I’d definitely recommend Grandad Mandela for fans of the Little People Big Dreams series, and for those who would like to learn the basics about Nelson Mandela and what he did for South Africa!
