Synopsis

Every Day is Malala Day by Rosemary McCarney

Dear Malala, we have never met before, but I feel like I know you. Malala Yousafzai is an inspiration. A young girl living in Pakistan, she was shot by the Taliban simply because she wanted to go to school. Since that moment, she has captured the attention of the world with her bravery, becoming a voice for the rights of girls everywhere. This is a letter to Malala, illustrated with beautiful photographs. Girls from around the world express their sympathy, sisterhood and admiration for her. Many of them know first-hand the barriers that stand in the way of girls going to school - barriers like poverty, discrimination and violence. In Malala these girls recognize a leader, a champion, and a friend.
