Where can I get it?

What I thought: Getting my children to have fun with Afrikaans is the biggest education challenge we have. So when I brought home this book of blokkiesraaisels (crossword puzzles), I expected to have to force them to show an interest. But the clear, big puzzles with their combination of easy word clues and picture clues hit exactly the right spot for my Scrabble-loving 10-year-old. Now we have a regular date each morning on the way to school, and he is surprising himself with how well he is doing. For Afrikaans-speakers the puzzles are more appropriate for foundation-phase kids, as the blurb suggests. But for us, it's just the thing and the illustrations and variety of words are not too babyish for a tween.
