Milloo's Mind: The Story of Maryam Faruqi, Trailblazer for Women's Education

Milloo lives in a time when school is considered unnecessary for girls. But to Milloo, education is essential. When she reads, her thoughts dance! Milloo courageously dreams of becoming a teacher, but in fifth grade her parents tell her she has had enough school. Milloo is heartbroken but finds a way to achieve her educational goals, graduating high school and college with honors.

When she’s married, Milloo’s husband tells her to stay home, but she does not let that stop her. She decides to open a school in her house and later opens more schools around Karachi, Pakistan, fulfilling her dreams. This inspiring picture book — written by Maryam's granddaughter — celebrates the founder of the Happy Home Schools, which provided education to thousands of girls across Pakistan at a time when girls weren't encouraged to go to school.
