The picture on the cover speaks volumes. There is no need for a title. This picture speaks for itself. Nelson Mandela was a man of peace and held high standards for everyone. Mr. Mandela lead an incredible life. This picture book details Nelson Mandela's life. It captures his journey from a little boy to a victorious leader. Read this book to your class. Introduce them to a man of simple ways who had a heart of gold.
LESSON ALERT- Read Nelson Mandela and lead your class in a thoughtful rich discussion of human rights. Have students research about his life and then write a biography about Mr. Mandela. I was also thinking students could compare and contrast Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr.
