“I tell my story not because it is unique, but because it is not. It is the story of many girls” states the winner of Nobel prize, Malala Yousuf Zai, a ‘symbol of what it means to stand up for your rights’, whose hardwork , courage and strive to win is globally acclaimed.

Fighting for oneself is a self-limiting journey, whilst fighting for others to enable them achieve victory and success, spreading education which inturns nourishes the minds of young generations is a victory worth achieving. Born in a beautiful valley of Swat, Pakistan, Malala Yousuf Zai, is a strong advocate of girl’s right for continuing education. In an area, where educating girls was considered unnecessary and unlawful, Malala stood out as a shining star and her courage glittered in every girl, providing them vision to continue education to bring pride and success for their families and homeland.

Her toys were books, and writing blogs that inspire young generation was her passion which flourished due to her father, her great enthusiast and admirer, who supported her in the struggle to bring the change in the world.

She was raised to global fame as an education activist after she attacked by a Taliban gunman in Pakistan in 2012, her family resettled in Birmingham in Britain. But the incident never stopped her and she continued striving as a role model to bring peace through education.

Across the world, a whole generation of girls who are excluded from learning by violence, discrimination or harmful traditional practices, can see themselves in Malala, whose struggle for peace is the pride for humanity.

"This is a book I would highly recommend for children whether read alone or with their parents. "

Reviewer: .

As someone I have great respect for, I had to remind myself to stay neutral and not praise this book on principle.

This is a biography of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani education activist and youngest ever Nobel Prize winner, written in a way that children can understand. It covers her life in Pakistan, the assassination attempt in 2012 by the Taliban, and her recovery and awards afterwards.

I can't fault the presentation of this book. The illustrations are full colour, and absolutely outstanding. The writing is well done, and despite the fact I am many years older than its target audience, it drew me in. The only slightly off note is that the text is part of the image and so cannot be resized, but it does work for the look for the book.

It is not a five for two very picky reasons. First, as she is still campaigning, a mention of Malala's foundation would have been nice, and second, I like resizeable text.

Overall, it is ideal for children, an easy way to broach a difficult topic, and wonderfully written; this is a book I would highly recommend for children whether read alone or with their parents.

This looks amazing, and I happen to work with children so I can definitely see a couple of students who would love to read this, and certainly benefit from it. This young woman is truly amazing, as is her story. I was so upset about a month ago when I found out that she was speaking at the local university here, and sure enough I missed it (I go to the school too, so how bad is that?) Anyways, I love her story and I will definitely pass this one along. Thanks for sharing.
