The largest city in South Africa is Johannesburg. Johannesburg was founded in 1871, when a tent town sprung up following the discovery of gold on the Witwatersrand in 1886. Johannesburg remains a mining hub and the financial capital of South Africa. It houses most of the large corporations and companies, which keep our country economically viable.

This award winning story is my personal favourite. An eaglet is rescued by a rural farmer after a storm and raised in captivity. A visiting friend challenges the farmer to see if this strange 'chicken' can fly. After failing in various ways, they set off before dawn one morning to see if the bird will fly from the edge of a cliff. To me, the value of this book lies in the underlying message that this book will convey to its adult readers - that no one is born for mediocrity. We need to discover our potential and 'fly'! Jock of the Bushveld, retold by Phyllida Brooke-Simons This is an illustrated and abridged version of the Afrian classic by the same title. It tells the true story, which has been enjoyed for generations, of a Staffordshire terrier that was the pet of transport rider in the days of the Gold Rush in the early 1900's. Jock was a remarkable fellow, a brave dog who accomplished many astonishing feats. Children will love this story. We have read it over and over. Nelson Mandela - Long Walk to Freedom, Chris van Wyk Based on Mandela's autobiography, this picture book gently tells the story of his life and his role in the struggle for freedom during the Apartheid era of South Africa, until his release and inauguration as the first democratically elected president of SA in 1994. My 6 year old found this book fascinating, especially as it was 'really like this' in our own country and because he knows Mandela is still alive. It prompted many questions about the history of SA. At the Crossroads, Rachel Isadora This beautifully illustrated story depicts the life of children who live in a squatter camp, awaiting the return of their fathers who are migrant mine workers. It is a heart-warming story that reinforces the value of family relationships.

The Herd Boy, Niki Daly This tribute to the life of the late Nelson Mandela, focuses on a young herd boy, Malusi, who lives in rural South Africa. He dreams of being more than a herd boy one day, but for now, he focuses on being diligent in his daily work. One day, he meets a man in a flashy car who encourages him to live his dream. A touching story.
