Malala’s Magic Pencil by Malala Yousafzai (5-12 years)
“I would draw... the most beautiful dresses in the world for my mother... the best buildings in the valley for my father, so he could open many schools where children would study for free.”
Nobel Peace Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author Malala Yousafzai's first picture book will inspire a younger audience to see the magic in the world around them. As a girl growing up in Pakistan, Malala longed for a magic pencil, to fix the problems in her everyday life. But as she got older, Malala began to understand there were more important things in the world that needed changing. This beautifully illustrated picture book tells Malala's story in her own words, showing younger readers how she held onto hope, even in the most difficult circumstances.
