An illustrated, beginning level reader in isiXhosa.  Includes a word list.

"USelina Magasela wayengakwazi ukubhala nokufunda, kodwa wayephila ubom obumnandi nomyeni wakhe uJoe. Suka yonke into ayahamba ngendlela.  USelina ke ngoku kwafuneka ukuba aqine umqolo ngokunokwakhe."

"Selina Mabiletsa could not read and write, but she had a happy life with her husband Joe.  'Joe is my eyes,' Selina always said.  Then everything went wrong and trouble came to Thokoza where she lived.  Selina now had to be strong on her own.  This is the story of one woman’s struggle for survival and the surprising way in which her newly developing writing skills came to her rescue."
