“We understand and promote the notion that while children need to be guided they also have an entrenched right to be whatever they want to be and that they can achieve this only if they are given the space to dream and live out their dreams” Nelson Mandela

 

As the global community mourns the death of Nelson Mandela, we wanted to share an app and book recommendation with you, both of which have helped our kids find out more about this remarkable man.

The book, Long Walk to Freedom by Chris Van Wyk also came recommended by friends of ours who used to live in South Africa (thank you Stephanie & Meril!). In their words, “If you’re talking to your kids about Madiba – this is one of the best children’s books of all time”
