The high quality of writing and artwork make this book a treasure. It accomplishes what the best children's books do: It tells a compelling story while providing many educational details.
Review
As a teacher in the classroom you are always looking for unique ways to teach children things, and especially things that don't compartmentalise but link multiple subjects together, and this book does just this, so much more than just an interesting tool to use in science class!

'The big day has arrived and Bheki's house is flooded with electric light for the first time. He remembers the time, many years before, when his father gave him a light that really did seem to be magic. The torch brought him many friends and a new status in the kraal, until its beam began to fade. Bheki's journey to bring power back to the magic light tested him to the limit but ended in magic of a different kind. It gave him a belief in himself.'

At the end of the story, Bheki explains how batteries work and how electricity is generated and brought into homes across the world.

If you watched Nelson Mandela's funeral service at Qunu you will recognise the similar rural setting in the story. (Nelson Mandela was also a herd boy)

What better gift can you give to a child other than a book?

Bheki is small for his age and is bullied by the bigger boys in his African village, but his magic light wins him friends and respect - until the light begins to fade. Join Bheki on his life-changing journey to bring power back to the magic light. Perfect for teaching children about science, other cultures, and self-worth.



Review by a teacher.

This was a well-rounded story, taking a simple science idea (electricity) and turning it into something so much more! Yes in this story children will learn about electricity and how it works, in a simple and child-friendly and appropriate way, I also appreciated that safety issues were discussed, but they will also learn about believing in yourself and that you don't need "things" to make you special, you have your own unique qualities and strengths that make you special just as you are.
