Reviews

Full marks to Tamarind for their excellent Black Stars series. Children need positive role models and this, precisely, is what the series will provide. Highly recommended * Scholastic Junior Education * Young readers are implicitly advised to follow their dreams and have confidence in themselves; and there are explicit warnings not to be bound by your own or other people's low expectations. These messages would have relevance to any child coming from a disadvantaged background or lacking self-esteem * Books for Keeps * The Black Stars series teaches children a very important lesson - never give up on your dreams * Carousel *
