Welcome to the first truly South African list of books to read before you grow up! Hundreds of South African readers (adults and children alike) have nominated their favourite books and we’re proud to present them to you!
Red Pepper Books has dedicated a page to South Africa’s favourite books in the category of children’s books and covers books from baby books and beyond! You will never be stuck again in terms of buying books for your children to read; this page is full of fabulous recommendations.
From Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (and numerous others from Roald Dahl), to Enid Blyton’s The Wishing Chair, to Trompie, they’re all here, and more!
If there is a book you have read that you feel deserves to be on this list, please email email@example.com and we will definitely consider adding it to our list of favourite books to read before you die!
