Malala: Activist for Girls' Education - Raphaele Frier, Aurelia Fronty

Staff Pick

Early one morning in 1997, the first child of Ziauddin Yousafzai of Mingora, Pakistan, was born. Although many fathers in his country would have preferred a male child, Ziauddin believed that all children deserve an education; he was proud of his daughter, who by the time she was eleven was known around the world as Malala: Activist for Girls’ Education (Charlesbridge, $17.99). Raphaele Frier’s account of Malala’s life, translated from the French by Julie Cormier, is expertly tailored for a young audience. Aurelia Fronty draws inspiration from the folk art of South Asia to create warm-toned illustrations that invite readers to immerse themselves in Malala’s world. Photographs, additional biographical information, and excerpts from Malala’s writing conclude this handsome and inspiring biography. Ages 7-10.
