Every Day is Malala Day
By Rosemary McCarney
This is a very inspiring book about a fifteen-year old girl in Pakistan who is shot in the head by a member of the Taliban because she was going to school. It is a book that all girls should read.
Malala had been speaking out in public about the right that all girls had to an education. This is something that the Taliban was against. They believed that shooting her would stop her campaign, but it only strengthened her and the campaign. She had to be flown to England for life-saving treatment. But she did indeed recover. Malala and two others girls who were wounded in the attack are attending school and living in England. Malala works hard and is more determined than ever to ensure that every girl has a right to an education and that is not discriminated against or silenced.
What a powerful message for girls everywhere!
Thank you for such a wonderful book, and thank you Second Story Press for making such an important book available to the population at large.
