Editorial Review

“A riveting account of Malala’s life and achievements. Galat’s inspirational, empathetic writing introduces the reader to a young girl whose courage and determination made the phrase ‘I am Malala’ ring throughout the world. Brilliant illustrations and layout augment the book’s beauty and relevance.” —Basarat M. Kazim, president of Alif Laila Book Bus Society, IBBY representative for Pakistan, children's writer, and literacy/education advocate

“The entire narrative is very accessible and well written, and I really loved how Jump in the Think Tank and other features, including the glossary and bibliography, enhanced the text. This biography has a wonderful, positive message throughout! Highly recommended.” —Karen Upper, library services, Near North District School Board

“Joan Marie Galat makes the inspirational leadership of Malala Yousafzai beautifully accessible to new readers in an educational, enticing, and hopeful way. She gives parents, caregivers, teachers, and other adults an opportunity to be present with children on the power of forgiveness, and how people are making the world a better place.” —Peter Smyth MSW, RSW, MSM social worker and author

“At a time when young readers need to develop independent learning skills, The Story of Malala Yousafzai offers helpful scaffolds for learning such as colorful visuals, a glossary, a quick quiz to test comprehension, and think tank questions to put the reader in Malala’s shoes (‘How would you feel if you couldn’t do what you want just because you’re a boy or a girl?’). This is the most up-to-date biography for children about the Nobel Prize winner, Oxford grad, and activist.” —Heather McKend, Head of Children’s Services, Saint John Free Public Library
