Since the launch of The Children’s Mandela on the 9th November 2010, we have been sending out a quote a day on Nelson Mandela from the book for our followers, on both Twitter and on our Facebook page.
You are more than welcome to follow us on twitter under our user name @childrenmandela (note there is no “s” in childrenmandela due to name size restrictions on twitter) or subscribe to, or like, our (click this link->) Facebook page “The Children’s Mandela”, or which you can find by searching for The Children’s Mandela once you have logged in to your own Facebook account.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation has also announced that it will be sending out a quote a day, by Nelson Mandela, taken from their new book. These will be actual Nelson Mandela quotes, taken from speeches he has made during his lifetime, as opposed to the quotes from The Children’s Mandela, which are quotes by children between the ages of 6 and 12, on their impressions of Nelson Mandela according to their various views of him.
What is amusing about this book, is that the children say things that we as adults would and sometimes, could not say. The concept of the book is similar to the popular TV programs, called Kids say the darnedest things.
“A quote by former president Nelson Mandela will be released every day from Friday ahead of “Nelson Mandela International Day” on the 18th July, the Nelson Mandela Foundation has said.
The book of Nelson Mandela Quotes, titled “Nelson Mandela By Himself: The Authorised Quotations Book” will also be released in June.
