Fatima The Activist!

by Young Authors Program Editor, Olivia James Author and Jones Leal Illustrator

At Palm Valley Elementary School, some of the male students are discriminating against the female students. Fatima has had enough. She recruits some of her friends to help her and asks her family members for advice before staging a protest. With excellent and simple language this book can teach kids the value and purpose of activism, and discourage discriminatory and bullying behavior amongst children. A beautifully illustrated and heartfelt story.
