The Zulu of Africa

 It has been fun to check out some books from our local library that could be useful in teaching Elnathan about his South African heritage. The Zulu of Africa is full of lovely photos. It focuses on traditional and rural Zulu culture. This means that it does not give a detailed idea of what Zulu life is generally like today. However, it is useful from a historical perspective. It is also an enjoyable read because it focuses on the province of Kwa-Zulu Natal, where Dave spent several happy years. We have also spent a lot of time together there. Thsi book might be worth owning. I believe that it is good to own books that you want children to identify with as part of their childhood and history. I remember reading and re-reading books about Tasmanian aboriginal people as a child, because we had these in our home.
