We’re already up to day eight of our Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway and today Karolina Sutton has chosen her perfect Christmas book for young readers. Just visit our @CBBookGroup Twitter page for your chance to win.
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai with Patricia McCormick (Young Readers Edition), chosen by Karolina Sutton, Literary Agent at Curtis Brown
“From the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, written specially for the younger audience, the bestselling I Am Malala (published in the UK as Malala) tells the captivating tale of Malala’s childhood in the Swat Valley, her campaign for education, the shooting that made headlines in 2012, and finally her recovery and new life in Birmingham.
I Am Malala is a testament to the courage of one girl and her family and their fight for the right to an education – something often taken for granted by children in the western world. Malala started campaigning when she was just 10 years old. She began with interviews for local news channels and then went on to write a blog for the BBC about life under Taliban rule and the promotion of a children’s education.
We love this book because it shows the importance of standing up for your rights. I Am Malala is a truly inspirational and unforgettable story which encourages young people to stand up for what they believe in.
Don’t take it from us though. Here is a review by a teenage blogger:
‘I would like to start off by saying that this was the most inspiring autobiography I have ever read. It was unlike any other autobiographies where the writer shows off about their glamorous lives and such. Instead this book was about a young girl’s journey to achieve her one and only goal: For every child to get an education.’
For your chance to win a copy of I Am Malala – for yourself or to giveaway – just vist our @CBBookGroup Twitter page on Wednesday 10th December and retweet or favourite one of our promotional tweets about the book. We will be announcing one lucky winner on our Twitter page on Thursday 11th December, so stay tuned.
