Kids' Book Buzz/San Francisco Book Review - Jewel, Age 7

"I was so excited to review this book because my mom had told me about Malala. For the Right to Learn: Malala Yousafzai’s Story does a good job telling the history of Malala and what happened in her childhood before she was shot. I think that all kids should learn about Malala Yousafzai and how brave she is." - Kids' Book Buzz/San Francisco Book Review

Book Dragon, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center - Terry Hong

"...a timely introduction to the life of an international hero who is not much older than the book’s intended audience. . . .Author Rebecca Langston-George carefully highlights the many accomplishments, recognition, awards, and fame that nearly cost Malala her life. Artist Janna Bock is especially adept at capturing Malala’s expressions – just take a look at that hopeful determination on the cover image. . . .Not yet even out of her teens, Malala’s story has really just begun. Her determination to learn – and keep learning at any cost – is inspiration, at any age, for us all." - Book Dragon, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center

Booklist - Maggie Reagan

"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. . . .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." - Booklist

The Children’s Bookshelf, Central Michigan University, Public Broadcasting Cente - Sue Ann Martin

"Janna Bock’s illustrations throughout the book give the reader a feel for the traditions, culture and hardships in this part of the world. The colors of the gently rolling valley, the eagerness of the students, the darkness of the Taliban figures, the worry in the eyes of the adults and the resolve on the face of Malala are all powerfully represented. The opening illustration of Malala presenting her Nobel Lecture on December 10, 2014 is beautiful. . . .an excellent addition to the books on this subject and is designed perfectly for children 9-11 years of age." - The Children’s Bookshelf, Central Michigan University, Public Broadcasting Cente
