15 July 2018
As the world prepares to celebrate the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth on 18 July, ‘Grandad Mandela’ shows children why Nelson Mandela was unable to celebrate his birthday with his family for so many years. In a conversation with their grandmother Zindzi (Nelson & Winnie Mandela’s youngest daughter), Zazi (8) and Ziwelene (6) learn about Nelson Mandela’s life, sharing a story of great sacrifice and triumph. ‘Grandad Mandela’ gives us a sense of how Nelson Mandela was formed by his origins in the Eastern Cape, his principles of justice and ‘ubuntu’ and how his family and supporters in South Africa and the whole world contributed to his release. When Zazi and Ziwelene ask about the meaning of Nelson Mandela’s life story, their grandmother explains to them why it is so important and how they and all children can become part of this great story. Nelson Mandela’s love for children is legendary, and the beautifully illustrated children’s book ‘Grandad Mandela’ is a great place for children to start loving Nelson Mandela! :-)
