After living in South Africa for four years in the early 1990s, I came to appreciate the "small" stories of peoples' struggles as well as the larger fight for racial justice. "Not so fast, Songololo" represents both the larger and smaller story: Songologo doesn't have a pair of new sneakers - which many children take for granted - because it costs a lot of money for his family to pay for them. So when his grandmother treats him to a pair, it's a big event in his life. The pictures are lovely - capturing the rhythms of life for some South African children. I regret that there are not more books about them - and not enough by South African authors (Niki Daly is one of the few, and his other children's books set in South Africa, including Papa Lucky's Shadow and Jamela's Dress, are also lovely; Rachel Isadora is an American writer who has written some wonderful children's books set in South Africa). It's a sweet book that my daughter, who is 5, and I have loved reading together. We especially enjoyed taking it to South Africa when we went there together earlier this year, and then gave it to the mother of a four-year-old we met.

I have a nephew that goes by the nickname "Tsongololo" Listening to this book read by the same narrator that voiced the beautiful children's CD produced by LadySmith Black Mambazo (the title eludes me) was simply beautiful.

I loved the relationship the little boy has with his grandmother, very sweet.

Great book, love the revised version. My 1.5 year old son loves to listen to this book daily before his nap. He too loves his shoes, so we dub him Songololo too:)

This is a really cute book. I learned about it probably 15 years ago from the tv show, Reading Rainbow.

Malusi is different from his brother and sister. He likes doing things much slower, taking his time, even when everyone is in a hurry. Malusi's family is poor. He wears hand-me-down sneakers his older brother wore, and now there are holes in them. His elderly and very heavy grandma, Gogo, visits this day. She has trouble moving, even with a cane, but needs to go into town. Malusi is proud to be thought old enough, by his mother, to help his grandmother on her trip to shop. Grandmother Gogo is uncomfortable about the fast town traffic, the bustling people, and the quick-changing crosswalk lights. Gogo is also poor and also badly in need of new shoes (hers look "like worn-out tires on an old car"), but when she sees the condition of Malusi's sneakers (called "tackies"), she is moved to buy him a new pair of the high-top red sneakers with white stripes, displayed in a store window. Malusi does not expect this generosity, but grandmas love grandchildren. His new shoes seem to give him such pride and renewed energy that he walks just a little too fast for grandma. His thank-you is worded this way: "You know, Gogo, these are very nice red
tackies."

This took 10 minutes as a read-aloud; the interest level seems to be for K-2/3
The 2nd hand copy was in perfect condition. My grand daughters 6 & 4 years old, loved the story and the illustrations of the little African boy Songololo and his grandmother. The bond between the 2 generations was central to the story. The girls related so well to this book because their mothers had a copy of this book +20 years ago when they were under 10. This book was also a wonderful tool to explain that not every one has the opportunity to buy new items of clothing. Also, in some countries, driving in your own vehicle is not a given privilege and public transport is the only way to get to go shopping.
