This new series is a tribute to such children, and the themes of courage, determination, triumph and perseverance will inspire, challenge and engage young readers, creating greater cross-cultural understanding and informed empathy. Through My Eyes 2: Amina by Jessica Powers Amina lives on the edges of Mogadishu. Her family's house has been damaged in Somalia's long civil war, but they continue to live there, reluctant to leave home. Amina's world is shattered when government forces come to arrest her artist father and then rebel forces kidnap Amina's brother.

AN AFRICAN ABC Featuring CHRISTOPHER, LAUREN AND THE CAT

Author: Jacqui Taylor

Part of a series: ABC series

Publisher: PRINTLINE (1996)

This, the second book in the ABC series, is designed for anyone between four and one hundred and four. For the very young, to enjoy the sound of the words read by an adult. For older children, to encourage the use of glossary, (and their own dictionaries), to increase and improve their vocabularies. Lastly, for adults and children alike, the enjoyment of bright, detailed illustrations, giving a little insight into the flora, fauna, places and customs of Africa. As Africa is so huge and diverse I have focused on Southern Africa, Zimbabwe in particular, as it is my homeland and therefore more familiar to me. Christopher, Lauren, the cat and I, all hope that you enjoy this book. Zvifadze!

An Old-Fashioned Girl

Author: Louisa May Alcott

Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (2015)

The story is told in two parts. In the first portion, fourteen year old Polly Milton comes to Boston to stay with her friend Fanny Shaw, who lives the exciting if rather unfulfilling life of a young socialite. Polly, a shy country mouse in the big city, feels out of place among Fanny's wealthy and fashionable circle. However, she makes up for her lack of social standing with her good manners, modesty, and her domestic skills, which endear her to the Shaw household. Not least, she is a good influence on Fanny's rather wild brother Tom, who comes to care about her good opinion. The novel jumps ahead six years, as a twenty year old Polly returns to Boston for the unfashionable purpose of making her own living as a music teacher. Polly will make a niche for herself through hard work and self-denial. However, a maturing Polly has become attractive to men, and she will find herself in a romantic dilemma between two suitors. One will offer the poverty-stricken Polly the comfort of wealth with friendship; the other the possibility of genuine passion. In addition, Polly will be called upon to assist the Shaw's through a family crisis.
