In 1995 a young boy was killed. Recently, a young girl was shot. For doing one thing. Speaking out for freedom. We know the story of Malala: A young girl who wanted to go to school. Wanted her rights as a human being and was shot by the Taliban for her beliefs. Many, however, do not know Iqbal, a young boy who was, at age 4, given to a factory owner to pay his family's $12 debt. Iqbal, when found out he was a free person, spoke out against the slavery of children like him. At age 12 he was shot while riding his bicycle. Two very brave children, trying to just make a better life for others like them. Jeanette Winter's simple text introduces a younger student, and adults, to two great and powerful stories. ~Reviewed Jeanette
