      I feel very conflicted about this book I rarely not rate titles, since I absolutely love giving my opinion on books and ratings are what people first see when they look at reviews, but this book is not at all what I expected, and yet, I m not at all surprised The problem is that it doesn t introduce anything new Those that know a little bit about Malala will understand I read her memoir the young readers edition last year, so I couldn t wait to start this book, because I thought it would be an h [...]

      Each year my family reads all the award nominated picture books, and we have been doing this for years Everyone rates each book and adds a comment and it may or may not affect my overall rating This is book 12 of 2017 I knew then that if I had the magic pencil, I would use it to draw a better world Tara 4.5 stars Very sweet and moving.Harry 12 5 stars Sad, with everything people went through and what they still go through today.Hank 11 5 stars Just amazing Lyra 10 5 stars Beautiful and inspiring [...]

      This picture book details Malala s childhood in Pakistan It describes the poverty, the reasons some children might not go to school needing to help make money for food or perhaps parental beliefs that only boys go to school as girls should stay home and cook and clean The men with guns come into their city and make it unlawful for girls to go to school Despite this, Malala continues her education and writes and speaks out about her belief that everyone deserves education The Taliban try to silen [...]

      This story begins with Malala s life in Pakistan, how she can go to school but notices other children can t The story reflects on Malala s dreams and hopes for change, and relates Malala s Life so far in a way that shows what s been happening but is not disturbing for young readers, although the pivotal part of the story where Malala is shot is so subtle my daughter who is 12 completely missed it and asked me why that part was left out There s a nice page written by Malala at the back and an inf [...]

      I remember reading I am Malala, and how she told the tale of the magic pencil This story truly proves how kind and unselfish she is, even as a young child I love how she took that idea and turned it into a beautifully illustrated story.

    6. Krista the Krazy Kataloguer on said:

      This is not so much a book about Malala s life as it is a book about her dreams She and her brothers used to watch a TV show about a boy with a magic pencil, who would get himself out of trouble by drawing things that would save him It reminded me of Crockett Johnson s Harold and the Purple Crayon She uses the idea of the magic pencil to talk about what she would do if she had one how she would help her family and how she would help others, not just in Pakistan, but all over the world As she got [...]

      Absolutely aspirational Finally, after reading several poor quality picturebooks telling the story of Malala, along comes a picturebook written by Malala herself and illustrated by Kerascoet I loved both elements equally and think the illustrator did a wonderful job of making powerful points about the problems in Pakistan, implicitly The narrative is so well written and accessible and the illustrations have an almost cartoon like appeal which carry no humour but a sense of reality that makes the [...]

      One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world This was a beautifully told and illustrated picture book about Malala and her life before she became a famous advocate for girl s education I would recommend for many parents to read this to their children

      This was a really cute book Malala uses nice imagery to capture her story to the youngsters It is uplifting and simple, something great for the youngsters.

      Malala Yousafzai is a well known international figure A vocal advocate for education especifically that of girls, Malala is a fighter Malala survived an assassination attempt against her by the Taliban She celebrated her sixteenth birthday by giving a speech at the UN and received the Nobel Peace Prize for her work when she was 17 years old the youngest recipient to date I read I Am Malala some time ago and was mesmerized by her spirit This is an abridged version of her story Somewhat vague on t [...]

      Ok I need this book in my school s library I m a teacher like, yesterday Malala is so brave to have stood up for and to continue to stand up for everything, and I love the message that even if our pencil is not magic we can make it so because one pencil paired by what we do and say can change things.

    13. Jasmine on said:

      Children s books about real life situations sometimes have a fine line to walk between telling facts to children that they re really not ready for, and hiding those facts to the point that a straight up inaccurate picture is drawn Picture books take that to another level, cause you re talking to very young kids This book does a really good job of telling a distressing story without letting it be TOO distressing the taliban keeping girls out of school and physically threatening people is scary en [...]

      Over the summer I read Malala biography and loved it I heard her story but finally got my hands on her book, it brought tears to my eyes and joy So, when I learned that she has a picture book I knew I had to read it But the best part is that I got to share her story with my younger brother While reading it he would ask a lot of questions During the story, I had to explain to him that not all kids get the chance to learn like he does, or why women in the book don t get to go to school like his si [...]

      It would be wonderful for children to learn about Malala and her advocacy for education, especially education for girls This book succeeded in bringing far away countries a little nearer I wish that she had named the Taliban powerful and dangerous men , but parents and teachers can fill in with information I understand why she minimized the details in telling about her attack but at the same time, without information, readers can t get a sense of how intensely these dangerous men didn t want [...]

    16. BrookesEducationLibrary on said:

      This picture book was completely inspirational, the story told by Malala herself details her wish as a child for a magical pencil to improve her life before describing the situation in Pakistan for girls attending school The language flows so smoothly and it is both a joy and a sadness to read Sad to know that so many children are affected by these restrictions for education and yet happy to know that Malala has already and continues to make a difference for these girls You have to read this, it [...]

      Malala has been an idol of mine for quite some time, and I was delighted to find that she had written a picture book I had previously been given the teenager s version of Malala s biography as a Christmas present, as my mother was trying to encourage me to read I could not put this book down, it painted the story so well that I felt I knew her as a person and had lived through her experiences with her I felt her pain, but I also felt her accomplishments and felt inspired This picture book can b [...]

      Uma hist ria t o inspiradora que faz com que olhemos para as nossas conquistas pessoais como algo completamente banal insignificante Malala uma for a avassaladora e enquanto mulher uma inspira o di ria Sem duvida que uma leitura ideal para ser partilhada com todas as crian as.

      My daddy has a copy of Malala s biography She s a Noble Peace Prize winner wow I like the morale of this story what girls should voice their opinion to be equal and boys like me should support them.

      I didn t think I d like this book, and I am still unsure about how I feel about Malala or how she chose to write this book, but the illustrations are so incredibly beautiful Really worth looking at

      I loved this children s picture book version of Malala s life story, told by Malala herself, that is aimed at a very young reader and uses the metaphor of the magic pencil from Malala s favorite childhood television show to encourage children to read, learn, and write and use their own words to improve the world The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, pen and ink colored in, with a gold ink to show the fanciful magic drawings of the pencil, and Malala s dreams for improving her life and the l [...]
