Braving the Bullet: A Story Inspired by Malala Yousufzei (Little Leaders)


Malala was fearless. In a society where little girls were kept behind closed doors, Malala went to school. When the Taliban came to power and closed all schools for girls in the Swat valley, Malala continued to speak about each child’s right to receive an education. She even braved a bullet, yet carried on tirelessly, fighting for girls’ rights. In 2014, at the age of seventeen, Malala was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her efforts.

The possibilities, hopes and dreams that were once Malala’s, now belong to little girls everywhere. Beautifully illustrated by Aniruddha Mukherjee, and movingly told by Arthy Muthanna Singh and Mamta Nainy, the story of Malala — a little girl from the Swat valley in Pakistan who became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner — comes blazingly alive for the little ones.

It’s never too early to introduce your child to the people you admire. Here’s a collection of beautifully illustrated picture books for children aged 5 to 8 years. Each book in the Little Leaders series will introduce young readers to an incredible story of people who followed their dreams, despite all odds. These tales of passion and courage will emphasize that turning-point in the lives of role models, some of them as old as the readers themselves. Both parents and children will appreciate these moving stories of grit, determination, perseverance and using the imagination.
