Booklist (November 15, 2015 (Vol. 112, No. 6))
Grades 2-4. Each book in the Encounter: Narrative Nonfiction Picture Books series follows the life and work of a notable woman in history, framing her story in a way that young readers can understand. For the Right to Learn tells the story of Pakistani Malala Yousafzai, now 18, and her ongoing fight for girls’ right to an education, even when threatened by the Taliban. Though careful not to take too many liberties with a historical text, these read like fiction and will spark the interest of many young readers. Each installment has a different illustrator, giving them all a unique flavor, and all have some sort of back matter that recaps the facts gleaned from the story. They vary somewhat in audience ranges but this is an interesting concept with an effective, highly visual approach.
