Good Heavens! By George! Thank you!

Thank you very much George EllisGood Heavens! Little Hands! Books! Blogs! Teapots! The laws of Physics, explain much, but do not give a realistic description of causality in the truly complex hierarchical structures and the outcomes of intentional design such as BOOKS! This is what I read this morning in George F.R. Ellis’s essay Physics, Complexity and Causality, published in Nature (June 2005). I highly recommend the article as it is a short, but fascinating and inspiring peek into the mind, work and universe of very generous George Ellis. It is one of the five hundred other published articles by George Ellis, Distinguished Professor of Complex Systems in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics at the University of Cape Town. (More are listed on George’s web page, which will surely cause you to say: Good Heavens!)

Thank you very much George, for the 83 boxes of Little Hands books you donated for the children of Luvuyo orphanage.

Welcome to the Blog for “Little Hands”

Little Books for Little HandsWelcome to the blog of the Little Hands Trust. The Trust is now supporting an initiative of the Stories Across Africa project, which together with New Africa Books has recently published sixteen beautifully illustrated books for 2 to 6 year old children.

We’re helping to raise funds to get this pan-African set of Little Hands books – which come packaged in a special box – to as many young children as possible. The books were conceptualised for sharing in as many countries and languages as possible, so that children come to learn about and enjoy what they have in common as young citizens of Africa.

Little Hands books are already available in the following languages: Afrikaans, English, French, Kiswahili and Xhosa.
