With the death of Mandela this year, I wanted to find a book that told his life story with strong illustrations and some of his own words. This book does just that. It tells of his growing-up years, law school, marriage, and imprisonment, finishing with his eventual win as president of South Africa. It is just right for kids. Simple and engaging. With an author’s note at the end that further explains his fight against apartheid and his receiving of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Great List!!! Read some with my own children.

You should try "You Should, You Should"

It teaches a great lesson for all ages!

I loved the list, but what I loved even more was laughing and sharing with my husband the first paragraph and sentence following. Have you been over here lately? :)
