THEMBI AND THEMBA

The Thembi and Themba titles are written and designed to promote reading at the school and public library and to educate in the classroom.

 

The titles intend to inform and educate our little angels about issues and institutions that they will take responsibility for when they grow up; aiding in their development as young and responsible adults.

 

Further, by the very nature of its subject matter, our little ones are informed of the great opportunities available to decide on their career paths from an early age. This feature assists them to excel in those subjects required for their chosen careers.

Thembi and Themba’s visit to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden turns into an adventure

when Gogo and Uncle thabo go off on their own. In searching for Gogo and Uncle Thabo,
