Read Malala's Magic Pencil Online Free - Nobel Peace Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author Malala Yousafzai's first picture book, inspired by her own childhood.
Malala's first picture book will inspire young readers everywhere to find the magic all around them.
As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil. She would use it to make everyone happy, to erase the smell of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. But as she grew older, Malala saw that there were more important things to wish for. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true.
This beautifully illustrated volume tells Malala's story for a younger audience and shows them the worldview that allowed Malala to hold on to hope even in the most difficult of times.

Each year my family reads all the Goodreads-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.

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.

It reminded me of Crockett Johnson's Harold and the Purple Cra...

"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!

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 ab...

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.
