The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2014 Meet two brave young heroes of Pakistan, Malala and Iqbal, each unafraid to speak out, each a victim of unspeakable violence, each an inspiration to the world as they stood up for the right to freedom and education. This non-fiction picture book is an inspiration to all from acclaimed author-illustrator Jeanette Winter.
Ingrid Selberg, Managing Director, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing Division says, ‘I am so proud to be publishing this extraordinary picture book, which tells the inspirational stories of two amazingly brave young people, which should be shared with children everywhere.’
Malala a Brave Girl from Pakistan/Iqbal a Brave Boy from Pakistan by Jeanette Winter
One country: Pakistan.
Two children: Iqbal Masih and Malala Yousafzai. Each was unafraid to speak out. He, against inhumane child slavery in the carpet trade. She, for the right of girls to attend school. Both were shot by those who disagreed with them-he in 1995, she in 2012. Iqbal was killed instantly; Malala miraculously survived and continues to speak out around the world.
In a two-in-one book that readers can begin from either end, Winter links the lives of two courageous child activists from Pakistan--Malala Yousafzai and Iqbal Masih. The pairing works to good effect; it is as if Malala stands on the shoulders of Iqbal...Winter's spare prose and simple, colorful pictures illustrate both children's circumstances and the mantles they accepted. An introductory note to each story provides a much-needed event summary. Readers will be moved by both sacrifices, and many will want to know more...This is an inspiring introduction to two important young champions of human rights. Booklist 10/1/14
