Little People, Big Dreams: Malala Yousafzaiquarto
In the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the lives of outstanding women, from designers and artists to scientists and adventurers. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little girl with a dream.
When Malala was born in Mingora, Pakistan, her father was determined she would have every opportunity that a boy would have. She loved getting an education, but when a hateful regime came to power, girls were no longer allowed to go to school. Malala spoke out in public about this, which made her a target for violence. She was shot in the left side of her head and woke up in a hospital in England. Finally, after long months and many surgeries, Malala recovered, and resolved to become an activist for girls’ education. Now a recent Oxford graduate, Malala continues to fight for a world where all girls can learn and lead.
With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world.
