About this deal

As well as clear character descriptions and vivid imagery, there are many themes running through the story as it deals with racism and prejudice along with family, love and determination.

Through meeting Grace they learn about the struggle against the unfair system of the apartheid and the uprising of students against the treatment of black people. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (French former tennis player) has no apparent relation to South Africa (I think I assumed he had). It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service.We learn that Dineo needs milk, fruits, and vegetables to stay healthy and strong, and Mma wonders where she will find the money to get them. Naledi convinces Tiro to walk with her to Jo'burg to get their mother, who would have money to take Dineo to the doctor. A gripping, heartfelt journey of two siblings desperate to find their mother in Joberg, set off on foot to bring their mother back to save their I'll baby sister. They are successful in finding their mother, who is able to get her youngest to a doctor in time to save her life.

Growing awareness of the sufferings of South Africa’s black children brings renewed point to Beverley Naidoo’s Journey to Joburg, a story for young readers, the more searing for its gentleness, that makes them ask questions we must learn to answer. We have used it as a basis for topic work - dressed the room and created an impressive visual display, studied South Africa including its geographical features and compared them with the features of England. Although most children have not lived long, if ever, in the country if their family's origin, they may feel a connection to it.As they try to take a bus to get to their mom, they are yelled at for trying to get on a ''Whites Only'' bus. She married a man from Indian descent: their union would have been ”a crime” under the apartheid laws (I'm guessing like Trevor Noah's parents').
