Book Choices

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.

Books known to be out of print have been omitted.

NB. If you would like to get copies of any of the books you have the following options available:

  • If you are fortunate enough to have a bookshop nearby you can ask them to order copies.
  • You can order them directly from the publisher through their websites.
  • You can picket outside Parliament for SA children’s books to receive some acknowledgement and support!
