Nord Anglia’s Global Library: Malala’s Magic Pencil
Nord Anglia’s Global Library has been promoting “One World One Book” since the beginning of this academic year across the Nord Anglia family of schools. The Simon Lawrence Library has enjoyed participating in this event with “The Breadwinner”, this year's featured author Deborah Ellis’ book. We have now started promoting “Malala’s Magic Pencil”. During her summer holidays with her family, Malala Yousafzai watched an Indian children’s TV show about a magic pencil and one day the memory inspired her to write this book, which tells her own story in a simple and graphic style. The beautifully illustrated book is highly recommended not only for younger children but also teens to share their ideas and dreams for the world with families as well as to discuss how to use their own magic pencils in our community. Please watch her book trailer on Youtube. In addition, the theme is connected to UN’s Sustainable Development Goals - Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. If you're not sure what these are all about, please check out more information on Global Library in Nord Anglia Global Campus through Moodle or just by clicking this link.
