When Malala Yousafzai was born in Mingora, Pakistan, her father was determined she would have every opportunity that a boy would have. She loved getting an education, but when a hateful regime came to power, girls were no longer allowed to go to school. Malala spoke out in public about this, which made her a target for violence. She was shot in a brutal attack, and woke up in a hospital in England. Finally, after long months and many surgeries, Malala recovered, and resolved to become an activist for girls' education. Now a recent Oxford graduate, Malala continues to fight for a world where all girls can learn and lead.
From the Little People, BIG DREAMS series comes an empowering introduction to Malala's work for educational access around the world. With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the activist's life, this book is a fitting tribute to the youngest Noble Prize laureate and everything she risked to change the world for the better.
