Hi everyone, today’s post is for Malala Day ….. The review of her book : ‘I am Malala ,The girl who stood up for Education and was shot by the Taliban’….
I Am Malala* is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out…..Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.
On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.
Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
Intially I had no interest in reading about Malala (no offence) or about what happened to her or about her campaigns. But my aunt gifted me this book…. At the beginning I was not inclined to read it but anyhow I started and soon I was drinking up her words and thinking about them all the time….
She had so much courage as I would never have dreamed of… Never fearing about her life, fighting for everyone’s right to education. If I would have been in her place I could not have done half of it. It is an inspiring read… I loved the book and would recommend it to everyone especially at this time of pandemic as it gives a kind of hope… In short it’s an amazing read.
*Note: If this book is to be gifted to a tween the below book will be much more suitable.
This book is also the autobiography of Malala but it is precise and is to the point without extra info about other things.Only about her standing up for girls right. But for children it is perfect. I loved it for what it is….
These books changed my life and my view if life. Malala has inspired me a lot.
🎉🎉🎉I wish Malala A Very Happy Birthday and Wish that May God shower her with blessings and keep her safe💐💐💐
Happy Malala Day to all!!!❤️
