Jingle-Jingle in My Pocket (Paperback)
Thandi needs new shoes but she knows they cost a lot of money. After thinking for a while, she goes to her grandmother, who helps plan a way to get the money with a little bit of help from Nosipho, Thandi's doll, and Pepi, her pet rooster. Along the way, Thandi learns that gentle persuasion is sometimes best—and that with the help of friends, everything is possible.
Catherine Groenewald lives on a small farm in South Africa and is involved with a nonprofit initiative that trains disadvantaged women to make an African rag doll called Nosipho; the doll is featured in this book. She is the illustrator of Nosipho Comes to Stay.
