The youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai campaigned for all children who want an education and almost lost her life because of this whilst still only a school girl herself. This book tells the story of Malala from growing up in the Swat Valley of Pakistan. where she was initially educated by her father. Learn about what happened when Taliban leaders controlling the area she lived in tried to outlaw education for girls and tried to force them to cover their entire bodies and faces. Read it to learn how Malala became world famous and continues to fight for every child to have the right to be educated and live in peace.
This book shares an account of her life in a way that children will understand and relate to. The illustrations are extremely appropriate, enhancing the text and helping readers understand. A great book about a young girl who has helped to inspire others throughout the world.
This book will be very useful for teachers who wish to show that it is not just older people who can change lives for others. It also helps them understand how even one person can make a difference. Everyone can be inspired by her story which is shared in this book.
