Last year I read a book that I learned a very important lesson from. The book that I read was “I Am Malala.” A lot of people know the Story of Malala, the young girl who was shot by the Taliban for standing up for her right to be educated. The amazing thing, is that Malala survived to tell her inspiring story. There were a lot of lessons in her book, however the most important lesson that I learned was how much education is taken for granted in first world countries. On the Malala Fund’s Social Media pages and websites, often videos are posted of things that aren’t shown on the news. In these videos, you see girls who want to go to school, learn and better themselves. In a lot of countries, education is something that has to be fought for, and I learned from reading “I Am Malala,” that here in the United States, education is something that we should appreciate more.
I feel like as long as she knows that basics of the story, she should be all set.
I haven’t read Malala’s book yet. I think it would be good to read it with my daughter so we can talk about these big issues.
Depending on how old your daughter is, the subject matter may be too mature. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone under 13.
Good to know…She’s close, but I’ll prescreen it. She already knows who Malala is and the basics of her story. (I still read out loud to my kids, even to my teen son 🙂 Easy way to get conversations going.
Education is so important. we ar busy teaching my daughter how to write. She is 4 and I looked at her today and I thought isn’t it terrible that there are so many children and adults denied the right to an education check out my E day challenge. Thanks for this post @Daisy from
We take so much for granted here, we have so much to be grateful for.
We really do, and that’s what I learned from reading Malala’s book. And thank’s for tweeting the link!
