Malala Yousafzai: Warrior with Words

by Karen Leggett Abouraya, L.C. Wheatley (Illustrator)

Genre: Children’s Books/Biographies/Social Activists/Women

Winner of the California Reading Association’s 2015 EUREKA! Honor Award, This is the inspiring true story of 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani girl who stands up and speaks out for every child’s right to education.

Though she and two of her schoolmates were targeted by a Taliban gunman, a life-threatening injury only strengthened her resolve. Malala spoke at the U.N. on her 16th birthday in 2013, nine months after she was shot.

Author and journalist Karen Leggett Abouraya, author of Hands Around the Library: Protecting Egypt’s Treasured Books, brings Malala’s story to life for young readers. Malala’s story is more than a biography of a brave and outspoken teenager. It is a testament to the power of education to change the world for boys and girls everywhere.
