My daughter loves the REBEL GIRLS series, so I m thrilled to have another book about strong girls and women to share with her MUSLIM GIRLS RISE is a book that bravely stands up and offers a counter message to the current political climate of anti Muslim sentiment and backlash against immigrants With colorful illustrations and captivating personal stories, MUSLIM GIRLS RISE shows us the important and varied contributions of Muslim girls and women to our country and across the world The quotes from each of the women featured provide readers with inspiration and courage to pursue their own dreams As Dalia Mogahed tells us, facts can replace fear, and this book strives to do just that It also encourages all of us to sit down and talk to each other, and maybe even share a meal, just as Amanda Saab does. My 10 year old is a huge fan of the Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls series, so this book will be very appealing to her What I love about it is that it includes not only girls and women who are known names like Malala Yousafzai and Ilhan Omar but also those who are making an impact on a smaller scale that a child reader could relate to and aspire to Whether in sports, fashion, science, or activism, there are motivational stories here that will appeal to many readers interests, and will empower them as they make decisions in their own lives.The straightforward text by Saira Mir and equally modern, fresh illustrations by Aaliya Jaleel make this book fresh and approachable for readers 7 12, but could well be read aloud to younger children, too.
