Malala / Iqbal: Two Brave Children

Malala, a Brave Girl/Iqbal, a Brave Boy: Two Stories of Bravery - Jeanette Winter

11/29/2014 ** I first heard of Iqbal, a boy who dared to speak out against child slave labor in the carpet weaving industry, several years ago. Jeanette Winter, known for picture books about critical issues, has written a moving picture book about Iqbal and Malala - two Pakistani children daring to speak for their own rights.


The most moving image is the center spread in which Winter links to two stories with the ghost of Iqbal and Malala's images flying kites toward each other.
