    We unintentionally paired this with Herd Boy Reading the latter, it was cool to watch Malcolm recognize Mandela traveling incognito in Herd Boy as the main character from a book we had read two nights before Putting it all together, that one.

    This book was excellent because, again, of Kadir Nelson s passion for African American history The reader can tell the time and effort he put into each illustration in order to capture the charisma of such an impacting historical figure And I appreciated his selections of facts to write alongside these great images He gives readers a great background and insight to Mandela s life while educating young kids, and adults like myself, on the importance of his contributions This is an excellent cultu [...]

  12. Sue Conolly

    I read this book today as a way of feeling positive about the world.Both words and illustrations by Kadir Nelson were woven expertly throughout the book to create this story Words are made easy to read in some places white on dark background, dark on light background , and the author makes you work to read words in other places the sign on the beach has letters that are large and prominent but the reader has to dig into the valley of the book to see the whole message, the dark words on the dark [...]

  13. Barbara

    Relying on powerful words and visually stunning illustrations, Kadir Nelson traces events in the life of Nelson Mandela, called Rolihlahla as a child He includes moments that will appeal to children for instance, how his name was changed when he went to school, the loss of his father, and being sent far from home to study Readers will be swept away by the young man s determination to make a change in South Africa, influenced by the words of his ancestors and the elders and his own innate sense o [...]

    It made me smile to see this book on my library s holding shelves with my name on it I love Kadir Nelson s art and there was Nelson Mandela s big, beautiful face However, the book was a disappointment It s too simplistic and tells a tale that is folklore than truth Reading this book, you wouldn t know that the ANC was armed when Nelson Mandela was arrested I found this out when I worked with Amnesty International in college I was distressed to learn that the world s most famous political prison [...]

  20. Jenny

    I absolutely love the illustrations Kadir Nelson does an incredible job illustrating books and evoking emotion While I enjoyed the text, I was left wanting Particularly because my children have heard of him but know very little about him, I wanted details about his life and what he accomplished There is an author s note at the back that provided some details, but I wanted a timeline and even details.

  21. Becki Iverson

    I have one word for this book GORGEOUS It seriously has the most beautiful illustrations I ve ever seen in a children s book The amazing, amazing paintings tell the story almost without words Kids and grownups will be blown away by how beautiful this is The story itself also stays true to Madiba s past although a little oversimplified for my taste, it is a kid s book so they get away with it This is a quick, beautiful read that is a wonderful story for any child.

  22. Whitney Ward

    Nelson Mandela is the inspiring story of how one man s struggles and fight for equality in South Africa, brought a country together Readers are captivated through beautiful illustrations and words about a young boy s determination to change his country and his journey to eventually becoming a South African president who believes in equality for people of all colors.
