A most impressive person: Nelson Mandela

#NelsonMandela #NetGalley Pub Date 04 Jan 2022

Over the course of 2021 I have reviewed many books in this series. It seems appropriate somehow to close out the year with this title on a truly good man and inspiring figure. Hope it will also inspire you and the children in your life.

Nelson Mandela’s story is well and simply told here, from his early years, through his education and eventual arrest. Mandela’s “long walk to freedom” is noted. I love the last sentence of this book. It simply states “…a winner is just a dreamer who never gives up.”

As it always true in this series, there are supplemental materials at the end of the book. These offer additional information. Also, the illustrations enhance the text; their colors match the tone of the story.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
