Children's book on Malala Yousafzai in library at local church

While at Mt. Olivet Methodist Church this Sunday morning, I saw a children’s book “Malala Yousafzai: Warrior with Words”, by Karen Leggett Abouraya, with illustrations by L.C. Wheatley, published by  Star Walk Kids.  The basic biography is here.

The book communicates her being shot and recovering toward the end, in a gentle way appropriate for children.

This is an example of a very serious subject being crafted into a children’s book. This not a genre that I do, but I see that it can be very profitable and useful.
