Wandile and Duma have played every game with Bhubusi and Zinhle has read all her story books. They miss school and all the things they learn and all the friends they see. But then Duma gets an idea: if they can’t go to school, why can’t the school come to them?

Book 3: Come, Let’s play!

Children in the community have been enjoying their classes with Zinhle and Lebo. It has lifted their spirits though Zinhle knows that all work and no play would make Duma a dull boy! But what could they play during a time of covid-19 that would keep them safe and healthy? And would they be able to keep their social distance? The children come up with a plan.
