A beautiful story of friendship and love
Our wonderful, diverse, colourful country is filled with many deserving stories.
A beautifully integral one is the story of friendship and love between children and their nannies.
This story is the second title in the series about a little boy, Sam, and his wonderful, creative and inspiring nanny, Nelly.
Nelly shares ideas, local history, tradition and culture with Sam. She brings a bit of her world, words and heart into his. Sam in turn, does what all little boys do – he happily joins in the adventure. This particular story revolves around the idea of thwala – the Zulu word for carrying something on your head.
By crossing a shallow stream for a picnic, Nelly teaches Sam the art of thwala and Sam learns that there is more than one way to use his head.
This is a story of innocence, love and care that connects us across backgrounds.
