"Dear Malala, I have never seen you before, but I've heard your voice. We are raising our hands with you...as you represent all of us..." This book opens with a brief introduction to the heroism of Malala Yousafzai, before moving on to an imagined letter to her from young women across the world. Accompanied by stunning photographs of girls and young women from every continent, giving testimony to both their subjugation and to their uprisings and declarations. A minimal text which speaks to a wide age range and which ends with an excerpt of Malala's powerful 2013 speech to the UN 's Youth Assembly on her 16th birthday. 'A brilliant book which speaks so clearly and emotionally. I love the letter format which in itself is very powerful' (Elaine, Foster Care Associates Liaison Officer, LL reviewer). Inspired by the UN's declaration of July 12, 2013 as Malala Day which led to young people producing a film of young girls' messages to Malala which in turn helped form the content of this book. Age 5-9, Hardback 30pp
