I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World (Young Readers Edition)

Yousafzai, M.
Redesigned for readers in grades 7-12, this is the story of Nobel Prize winner Malala, who was shot by the Taliban for advocating for education for girls. Born in 1997, the book traces her childhood in pre-Taliban Pakistan, how her country changed as the Taliban took over, and how her bravery and determination to seek rights for girls resulted in their vicious attack. Her straightforward, engaging manner and the accompanying visuals—photos, map, and timeline—will encourage critical thinking about human rights and how they are formed, changed, and can be taken away, bravery, freedom, advocacy, and the adversity that children around the world face. Social considerations noted.
