Written and Illustrated by Kadir Nelson
Published by Katherine Tegen Books; First Edition edition (January 2, 2013)
Another wonderful picture book by Kadir Nelson. I think this book is the most inspirational and beautiful picture book by Kadir Nelson. He writes books about African American people and influential leaders. This is must have book for schooled age children. Great description of Nelson Mandela’s life with realistic and inspirational illustration. I think this book would be perfect gift to children and also great book for school teachers to use this book in their class.
Kadir Nelson is two time Caldecott winter, and his works are inspirational. Must read!
