Editorial Reviews

Review

Children will come away from this book with an appreciation for the landscape and culture of South Africa. It stands alone but it is also a welcome addition to the highly acclaimed World Alphabet series. It carefully deals with such subjects as apartheid and promotes a positive vision for the future. A welcome addition to any library. School Librarian Poetic and powerful. The vibrancy here is in both text and photographs, capturing the richness and diversity of the land and its people, its past and present. The text sings out from this particular title in this worthy series. Books for Keeps
