One girl. One spark. Faint and fading in the dark.
Flicker . . . Flicker . . . Flicker . . . Glow. Tiny ember. Burning low.
Inspired by the global movement to empower girls through education, this lyrical story tells of one small girl who reads a book that lights a spark. She shares what she learns with her class, and the spark grows. The girl is then moved to write her own story, which she shares with girls around the globe, and it ignites a spark in them, lighting up the whole world. This heartwarming and moving narrative shows how books and education can inspire change and how one child can make a huge difference.
The description of the book, and well as the note in the back, address the global problem of girls in education more than the actual text does, so this is more of an inspirational book than an informational one.
Hand this one to readers who enjoyed Rosenthal's Dear Girl, Harrison's Little Leaders, Harris' Ambitious Girl, or Phenomenal Woman for a nice dose of female empowerment and motivation.
