Item Description...
Few figures have inspired as much respect or admiration as Nelson Mandela. From his boyhood days in the South African countryside, to the protests he led in school, his leadership of the African National Congress, and his twenty-seven years in prison, Mandela always stood firm for what was fair and right. He fought against the system of apartheid - the laws that treated black people poorly - and eventually helped to abolish it, becoming the first black president in South Africa's history. Mandela's extraordinary life is a story of courage, persistence, hope, and belief. Teach your children about one of South Africa's greatest heroes with this beautifully illustrated book.

More About Floyd Cooper

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! When Floyd Cooper discovered children's book illustrating, he found a way to complement his career in advertising. An apprentice of Mark English, Mr. Cooper began his freelance career while still a student at the University of Oklahoma. After graduating, he made his way to Missouri, where he secured a position at a greeting card company.
Although Mr. Cooper was established in his position there, he felt somewhat stifled. He lacked the freedom and opportunity for spontaneity that he longed for as an artist and the joy that could be found in doing something that he loved.
Determined to break out of the mundane cycle he found himself in, Mr. Cooper relocated to the East Coast in 1984 to pursue his career further. It was there that he discovered the world of children's book illustrating and was amazed by the opportunities for creativity it afforded. Mr. Cooper was energized. The first book he illustrated, "Grandpa's Face," captivated reviewers. "Publishers Weekly" said of newcomer Floyd Cooper's work, "Cooper, in his first picture book, creates family scenes of extraordinary illumination. He reinforces in the pictures the feelings of warmth and affection that exist between generations."
Illustrating children's books is very important to Mr. Cooper. He says, "I feel children are at the frontline in improving society. This might sound a little heavy, but it's true. I feel children's picture books play a role in counteracting all the violence and other negative images conveyed in the media."
Floyd Cooper resides in New Jersey with his wife, Velma, and their two sons.
