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.
Not many folk know that the impact of Nelson Mandela on humanity has been so profound, that the United Nations General Assembly declared Nelson Mandela’s Birthday, the 18th July, as an official Nelson Mandela International Day, as far back as November 2009.
Below is an extract from the UN General Assembly Media Release.
” GENERAL ASSEMBLY DECLARES 18 JULY ‘NELSON MANDELA INTERNATIONAL DAY’
The Children’s Mandela were proud sponsors of some prizes for the Kids Haven Golf day at Parkview Golf Club on Thursday 7th April 2011.
The Golf Day 2011 was a resounding success and close to R100 000.00 was raised! These funds will be used to educate & feed the children at Kids Haven. Kids Haven takes care of more than 200 children and some of their families.
We were proud to be able to use the book in this way, to put something back into the community.
Thank you to Kids Haven Management, Staff and Children! As well as Susan, Sheilagh, Gloria & Debbie for their tireless efforts and excellent organisation skills.
International Publisher sought to take The Children’s Mandela – and two more books in the series – international.
Future by Design Publishing, a South African publisher, is looking to sell the international publishing rights to a three book series, the first being a coffee table book entitled ‘The Children’s Mandela, A tribute to Nelson Mandela from the children of South Africa’.
7th April 2011: With the launch of Nelson Mandela International Day to take place on 18 July 2011, and Mandela Mondays, there has never been a better time to commemorate the life of this great World Icon.
What better way to commemorate the man, than with the words of those that have always meant the most to him: the children of this country. The Children’s Mandela is a unique and heart-warming book that bears testimony to this great man’s impact on all South African’s, but especially on those that hold our future in their hands: The children.

In the true spirit of forgiveness, truth and reconciliation commissioned by Nelson Mandela and #mandelamonday, we must not forget other people around the world, who themselves display similar levels of compassion for their fellow man.
Thank you Professor Jansen for a stunning article and display of the true values embodied by Nelson Mandela and the children of this country, values we hope will be carried forward by our future leaders.
In marketing The Children’s Mandela, we often come across people who assume that it is a book meant for children. We cannot stress enough that The Children’s Mandela is a book for the whole family, starting with children of reading age, and all the way up to parents, and grand parents.
While the book is is a compilation of children’s impressions and thoughts of Nelson Mandela himself, it is intended for readers who will not only find amusement in the children’s impression but will also see the wisdom and innocence in their words, as well as the influence of thier own families and teachers on their perceptions.
