When we meet someone, one of the things we notice is the colour of their skin. But what can someone's skin colour tell us about them? Despite what some people say, your skin means very little! Inside we're all the same.

Join Njabulo, Aisha, Tim, Chris and Roshni as they discover why humans have different skins, and how people's thinking about skin colour has changed throughout history. Skin We Are In is a celebration of the glorious human rainbow, both in South Africa and beyond.

One of South Africa's best-selling authors, Sindiwe Magona, has teamed up with well-known American anthropologist, Nina G. Jablonski, and award-winning illustrator Lynn Fellman to create a much-needed book about race and skin colour – for children. Magona has written a story of five friends as they explore and discuss the skin they are in. The scientific narrative, written by Jablonski, expands and supports the conversation topics generated by the children's adventure.

Go Away, Unicorn! is the snarky yet sweet story of Alice, a young girl who finds a best friend in the most unlikely of places. Go Away, Unicorn! is a funny, quirky book about the misadventures of an independent young girl, Alice, and her unicorn best friend, who constantly pops in and out of her life unannounced. Alice isn't interested in things like rainbows, glitter, the colour pink and unicorns. So her life is turned upside-down when a real-live unicorn shows up at her birthday party and decides to be her best friend. Unicorn is a wild, wacky, party animal who does everything he can to inject fun into Alice's day. Though she would never admit it, Unicorn's zany and unpredictable personality is the perfect addition to Alice's busy life. While it's hard for her to refuse his bubbly and sparkly personality, he can really be a horn in her side. And that's when you'll hear her say, "GO AWAY, UNICORN!"

The true story of Mary Seacole, the "Celebrated Heroine of the Crimean War". Over two hundred years ago in Kingston, Jamaica, a little girl called Mary watched as her mother selected a bottle of medicine for a sick British soldier. This marked the beginning of Mary Seacole's passion for nursing, which would go on to shape the rest of her life. As a young woman, she would have to overcome personal tragedy - the sudden loss of her mother and husband - and prejudice from her peers to reach the battlefields of the Crimean War, nursing soldiers back to health and even carrying them from the midst of the fighting. With words by Susan Goldman Rubin and lively illustrations by Richie Pope, this is the true story of the "Celebrated Heroine of the Crimean War".

Sea gardens have been created by First Peoples on the Northwest Coast for more than three thousand years. These gardens consist of stone reefs that are constructed at the lowest tide line, encouraging the growth of clams and other marine life on the gently sloped beach. This lyrical story follows a young child and an older family member who set out to visit a sea garden early one morning, as the lowest tides often occur at dawn. After anchoring their boat, they explore the beach, discover the many sea creatures that live there, hear the sputtering of clams and look closely at the reef. They reflect on the people who built the wall long ago, as well as those who have maintained it over the years. After digging for clams, they tidy up the beach, then return home. An author's note provides further information about sea gardens (also known as clam gardens), which yield a reliable food source and have been traditional places of learning. They have been found along the Pacific coast, from Alaska to British Columbia to Washington State, and some of these gardens are being restored today. The manuscript has been vetted and approved by the scientists of the Clam Garden Network and Kwaxsistalla Wathl'thla Clan Chief Adam Dick. Roy Henry Vickers, whose ancestry includes the Tsimshian, Haida and HeiltsukFirst Nations, has created hauntingly beautiful images to accompany the text.
