Short Description

From Cricket to Madiba, from Bunny Chow to Kubu, this photographic alphabet celebrates everything we South Africans love best about our country.


Full Description

" S is for South Africa where two oceans meet,
cold Atlantic from the west and warm Indian from the east.
Our country stretches wide over Africa' s southern shores
from golden beach to misty mountain, desert sand to grassy plain
in a land of contrasts where we praise the sun - yet pray for rain!"

From Cricket to Madiba, from Bunny Chow to Kubu, this photographic alphabet celebrates everything we South Africans love best about our country. Set at the southern end of the African continent, our beautiful land with its many different plants, animals, people and languages was once made ugly by racism. But now our rainbow nation is striving to make the country a fairer place for everyone.


Review

Children will come away from this book with an appreciation for the landscape and culture of South Africa. It stands alone but it is also a welcome addition to the highly acclaimed World Alphabet series. It carefully deals with such subjects as apartheid and promotes a positive vision for the future. A welcome addition to any library. || Poetic and powerful. The vibrancy here is in both text and photographs, capturing the richness and diversity of the land and its people, its past and present. The text sings out from this particular title in this worthy series.
