A Book can take many LIVES!

By Refiloe Maohlali,

A book can take on many lives … determined by its readers of course ~ and where they’re at in time and space.

I’ve read these books so many times … as writer, as rewriter, as highly critical voice holder, as storyteller to countless kids, as storyteller to my own inner kid … each reading being different to the last.

I read them with the intention of research … so, slightly removed and therefore open to receiving them as they are.

What a gift that was!

To step away a bit, see the wood for the trees … and experience how this trilogy unfolds as a whole.

It’s one thing to have a vision for something, quite another to experience it for yourself.

We Are One (let’s be kind to each other)

You Are Loved (I’m bold enough to tell you)

Let’s Play (and share in our joy).

A 3-part series of being human in relationship with self and others.

All the stories stand tall as individuals ~ our hope is that families can experience them as a unit too.

With exquisite illustrations by the highly talented Zinelda McDonald.

We are one, You are loved and Let’s Play are available in various languages from bookstores nationwide and online.
