A Short Biography On Nelson Mandela

In 1948, justice and equality were outlawed in the country of South Africa. The people needed one voice to speak up when the world fell silent. They needed one leader to stand up when the world looked away. One man answered that call; one man who sacrificed his own future for the future of his people and transformed a nation.

The story cuts back to Mandela’s childhood where we see him going through school and then university and finally, to when he gets his first job as an articled clerk.

The narrative focuses on him as being a positive leader and the face of change in South Africa – omitting later criticisms, like his lack of action in trying to stop the sweep of AIDS in South Africa when he was president.

Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas

Sinbad, the legendary hero of the high seas, has faced many challenges in his time, but none will task him more than the one he finds when he answers a call for help from an old friend, King Haakim of Hasis.
Haakim’s son, Prince Habib, is spoiled and self-centered and is becoming too much for his father to handle. Haakim knows that if the boy continues his wicked ways, he will never become the leader Hasis deserves. Fearing for the fate of his son and his subjects, Haakim implores Sinbad to help put the boy on the straight and narrow path.
Sinbad has faith that Habib can change, but after the wayward prince puts Sinbad and his crew in jeopardy, sending them on a dangerous and perilous journey, will either of them live long enough for the boy to become the man his father wants him to be?

Romeo and Juliet: A Novel-Ties Study Guide

A story of ill-fated lovers whose untimely deaths unite two feuding families, Romeo and Juliet has become the archetype of young love destined to meet a tragic end.

The hatred between the House of the Capulets and the House of the Montagues is well known in Verona. Yet love blossoms between Romeo and Juliet. A brawl between the kinsmen of the Houses leads to Romeo’s exile, and from then on it is a series of misjudgments and chance – of time, place, and event that inexorably play out the lovers’ doom.

One of the most popular of Shakespeare’s plays, and one of his most performed, Romeo and Juliet is an enduring love story of emblematic proportions. Campfire’s adaptation seeks to bring this iconic work of Shakespeare to young readers in a language that is simple yet Shakespearean, and art that movingly recreates a tragic romance of 16th-century feudal Italy.

The Jungle Book Mowgli S Story Subtitles

The adventure of a lifetime begins on the night a man-cub escapes certain doom at the hands of the tiger Shere Khan. In defiance of the tiger, the boy, Mowgli, is taken in by the Seeonee wolf pack and made a member.
Mowgli comes of age in the jungle and is taught how to survive by Bagheera, the black panther; Baloo, the brown bear; and Kaa, the python.
Always lurking nearby, though, is Shere Khan, who is determined that Mowgli will be his prey. But the hunter soon becomes the hunted when the boy and the tiger square off in an epic struggle in which only one will survive.
But greater than his fight with Shere Khan is the conflict Mowgli faces as he tries to find a place among wolves and humans – neither of whom truly accept him as one of their own.

The Wright Brothers: They Showed the World How to Fly

Orville and Wilbur Wright were just two seemingly average brothers from the American city of Dayton, Ohio, without even a high school diploma. Both were content living as local businessmen, printing newspapers and building bicycles. Like so many others, the two creative and inventive brothers harboured a secret fantasy since childhood, a dream to be able to fly.

In the late 1800s, the world’s leading scientists were trying to construct a machine that could soar above the earth. One by one these brilliant scientists failed, some even falling to their deaths, victims of their own winged contraptions. So, how could Orville and Wilbur even think of succeeding when no one else could?

But succeed they did. This is the story of their life, the risks they took, despite the multiple failures, and their unwillingness to accept defeat. This is the story of how the Wright Brothers find a way to change the world for the better.
