The youngest ever Nobel Prize laureate, Pakistani women’s rights activist Malala Yousafzai, is the 26th hero in the New York Times bestselling picture book biography series
This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great—the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of an icon in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos. This book features Malala Yousafzai, who first made the news in 2012 after a gunman shot her for being outspoken about a girl’s right to learn. After surviving the attack, she established the Malala Fund and continues to use her platform to fight for the right of girls everywhere to receive an education.
