The 64-page coffee table book includes a unique collection of photographs and stories from people who met Madiba as a child, as well as artworks from almost 100 children from various schools, including Athlone Church of Christ Educare Centre, Inthsinga Primary, Ukhanyo Primary, Rosmead Primary, Livingstone High and Westerford High.
People who have contributed their stories include Danny K and Nandi Yengeni, daughter of Tony Yengeni, among others.
Programme manager Bridget Kahts said: “We are very excited. Every year we do something for Mandela Day. It would’ve been his 100 birthday so we wanted to do something big and celebrate his legacy and love for children.
“There are children’s artworks on every page, so children will enjoy paging through, and their parents can read the stories to them. We decided on a book because it’s something that can last the way his legacy lasted.”
