Here Come the Girl Scoutshcgs
Written by Shana Corey
Illustrated by Hadley Hooper

From the Publisher: Juliette Gordon Low—Daisy to her friends and family—was not like most girls of the Victorian era. Prim and proper? BOSH! Dainty and delicate? HOW BORING! She loved the outdoors, and she yearned for adventure! Born into a family of pathfinders and pioneers, she too wanted to make a difference in the world. Combining her ancestors’ passion for service with her own adventurous spirit and her belief that girls could do anything, she founded the Girl Scouts—an organization that was both GREEN and GIRL POWER, decades before either term was introduced! One hundred years later, the Girl Scouts continue to have adventures, do good deeds, and make a difference.


Malala’s Magic Pencilmmp
Written by Malala Yousafzai
Illustrated by Kerascoët

From the Publisher: As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil. She would use it to make everyone happy, to erase the smell of garbage from her city, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. But as she grew older, Malala saw that there were more important things to wish for. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true.

This beautifully illustrated volume tells Malala’s story for a younger audience and shows them the worldview that allowed Malala to hold on to hope even in the most difficult of times.
