Mahatma Gandhi , Richard Attenborough

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

17 Jan 2002 In My Own Words
Ganhi was born in 1869 to Hindu parents in Western India. He studied law in London and then worked in Southern Africa to improve the rights of immigrant Indians. Back in India he took the lead in the long struggle for independence from Britain. He never wavered in his belief in nonviolent protest and religious tolerance. To Gandhi's despair the country was partitioned into Hindu India and Muslim Pakistan. The last months of his life were spent trying to end the appaulling violence that ensued, leading him to fast to the brink of death. In January 1948, at the age of 79, he was killed by the bullets of an Indian assassin as he walked through a crowded garden in new Delhi to take evening prayers.

4.0 out of 5 stars inspiring read 23 Dec 2007
By Library Kat - Published on
My son (who first read this book when he was 12) prefers to read comics, even though he is a good reader and can read just about anything I let him. He picked up my review copy of Gandhi and read it very quickly. He talked to me about Gandhi and his philosophy and said he thought it would be a good thing if more people, including himself, acted as Gandhi did. He then proceeded to reread the book several times over the next few weeks. He only rereads the comics he likes. This book made a big impression on my son, and for that reason, I think it's good. I think other children, especially those who are reluctant readers or struggling readers, will find the comic book format to be less intimidating and a fun way to begin learning about people from the past. Because my son loves comics, he enjoyed the cartoony, colorful illustrations; because my son loves fun cartoons, he enjoyed the framing story of characters from the future zapping into the past to learn about values by examining the lives of famous people.
