    An incredible tale of an important event in history that every child should learn about This book allows children to experience every emotion and part of the journey South Africans experienced to be able to vote Using this in a classroom would give children a huge insight into the injustice of the nonwhite majority and their rights The illustrations are beautifully drawn and really capture the emotions felt throughout this book.

    This book is perfect to read while learning about African history It takes place in South Africa and touches on topics such as people being denied their rights to vote The illustrations are done in a beautiful watercolor and are not very colorful which fits the story well I would recommend this for young children to start learningabout this history.

    Genre Fiction Grade Kindergarten 3rdReview I really liked this book because this one hundred year old great grandmother wanted to go vote for the first time in her life Her great granddaughter wanted to go too But no one wanted to take her so she had to beg I felt happy when she got to get out of the house and vote despite the condition that she was in.


  10. Matthew Archibald Matthew Archibald says:

    This is a moving book about South Africa s first election in 1994, where a grandmother shows her granddaughter just how important it is to have the right to vote We should all read it, and be inspired to utilize our right to vote here in the USA.
