Jay Heale’s selection of six top choice children’s books from South African children’s literature (in English) in a number of age ranges and topics has been compiled over six years. After his retiral from action in the field of children’s books, this task has been taken over by Lesley Beake – with occasional guest reviewers. We thank Jay so sincerely for all his voluntary work on this project. The reviews still stand – as a tribute to the excellence of South African children’s books. Reviews, for now, will be by Lesley Beake.
Most of the book reviewed can be ordered online – the quickest way of finding them, with second-hand copies also sometimes available there.
