South African story books for children are my favourite. There is no better way to introduce different cultures to a child than by way of a good story.
Sbonelo Snoop is a story about a 10-year-old detective who takes on cases and tries to solve various mysteries with humorous results. There are three different stories in this book, which will keep young readers hooked.
The text is large and easy to read, and the pictures are engaging. Children who are five years and older would be best suited to understanding the story as it does tend to be a bit wordy.
The author is Sarah Groves who is a free-lance writer based in Pietermaritzburg where she home-schools five children.
