  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 2/6/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/24/2014

    " very beautiful images. The story probably could have used a bit more detail. Good introductory book to the life of Nelson Mandela. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Odahowski | 1/22/2014

    " Nelson delivers again with larger than life illustrations of Nelson Mandela's life. This book could be a gateway for study on colonial Africa and the system of Apartheid for although Mandela was a lawyer before his imprisonment he supported armed rebellion against a repressive regime. His life as a prisoner inspired millions to push for his release along with other jailed freedom fighters. This book is available or check out the Gadsden County Public Library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret Towery | 9/13/2010

    " Kadir Nelson's artwork never disappoints. This text is not as strong as some of his other works, however. I think readers will need other sources to fill in their understanding of this important figure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 8/14/2010

    " Despite the fact that my husband pointed out a few historical inaccuracies, I thought this was really lovely and an excellent crash course in South African history for children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 7/26/2010

    " We unintentionally paired this with Herd Boy. Reading the latter, it was cool to watch Malcolm recognize Mandela (traveling incognito in Herd Boy) as the main character from a book we had read two nights before. Putting it all together, that one. "
