Nelson Mandela

Kadir Nelson (A and ILT)

List Price: $17.99 (Hardcover - African Leader / South Africa - 2013)

Description: In this picture book biography, award-winning author and illustrator Kadir Nelson tells the story of Mandela, a global icon, in poignant free verse and glorious illustrations. It is the story of a young boy's determination to change South Africa, and of the struggles of a man who eventually became the president of his country by believing in equality for all people, no matter the color of their skin. Readers will be inspired by Mandela's triumph and his lifelong quest to create a more just world.

An author's note at the back retells the story of Mandela's fight against apartheid in simple prose, and takes the story further, including Mandela's Nobel Peace Prize. A short bibliography lists additional sources for readers who want to find out more. (40 pgs) Ages 4-8

Ashay says, "I think this book gives an honorable tribute to a Nelson Mandela, a great man, who tried to do the best for his people and country. He had to overcome many challenges but mainly he had to dismantle the deep racism and prejudice in the his own homeland. His accomplishments open the doors, but even today black South African people's rights and freedom are not fully realized. Excellent work by Kadir Nelson. Must have for the library."
