About this deal

Set in South Africa, Naledi, a thirteen year old girl and her younger brother travel from their small village 300 km to get their mother (who works in Johannesburg) because their baby sister is very ill. I stopped and went on Wikipedia (my go-to source on almost everything) to see what the deal with Jo'burg is (it is Johannesburg indeed!

Grace helps them find their mother’s workplace and offers them a place to spend the night in Soweto.It isn't until they reach the city that they come to understand the dangers of their country, and the painful struggle for freedom and dignity that is taking place all around them. Beverley Naidoo (a white child) got a vaccine against diphteria, the children of the woman helping her family did not get this chance.

Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. It has prompted some lively discussions as well as provided a strong platform for engaging literacy lessons and cross curricular activities for half a term. Originally written in 1985, this book was not historical fiction but a description of life as it was in South Africa at the time. It has been a great inspiration for teaching children to use subordinate clauses and using setting to convey emotions.Two kids see their little sister getting very ill but the lady who cares for them doesn't have money for a hospital. Journey to Jo'burg: A South African Story, written by Beverley Naidoo , is about the journey a brother and sister, Naledi and Tiro, have to take to Johannesburg to try and find there mother as the little sister has become ill. What makes this book an international piece of literature is that it is about another country, South Africa, written and published in English.
