Little Leaders meets Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls in this gorgeous nonfiction picture book that introduces readers to nineteen powerhouse Muslim women who rose up and made their voices heard.

Long ago, Muslim women rode into battle to defend their dreams. They opened doors to the world's oldest library. They ruled, started movements, and spread knowledge.

Today, Muslim women continue to make history.

Once upon a time, they were children with dreams, just like you.

Discover the true stories of nineteen unstoppable Muslim women of the twenty-first century who have risen above challenges, doubts, and sometimes outright hostility to blaze trails in a wide range of fields. Whether it was the culinary arts, fashion, sports, government, science, entertainment, education, or activism, these women never took "no" for an answer or allowed themselves to be silenced. Instead, they worked to rise above and not only achieve their dreams, but become influential leaders.

Through short, information-rich biographies and vibrant illustrations, Muslim Girls Rise introduces young readers to the diverse and important contributions Muslim women have made, and role models they may never have heard of before, but whose stories they will never forget.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The lives of 19 champions for women's rights and equality are presented through short, inspirational bios in this bright and charming primer on contemporary Muslim women. Each vignette is accompanied by a quote along with a stunning portrait of the subject in her natural environment, be it a courtroom, movie set, or U.S. Congress. The variety of featured figures brings home the diversity of Muslim women; different nationalities, races, and ways of practicing faith are on display. Occupations range from author to activist to professional athlete and many others. Entries are arranged alphabetically by first name, and while some of the women, such as Malala Yousafzai and Ilhan Omar, may be familiar to many, the majority of them will be mostly unknown. This refreshing work concludes with a compelling exhortation to girls, encouraging them to rise up and be empowered. With jewel-tone illustrations that pop, this appealing collective biography will have children returning to its pages again and again. Many will be inspired.--Shelley M. Diaz Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This galvanizing compendium highlights an eclectic array of notable 21st-century Muslim women, among them author Ilyasah Shabazz, activist Linda Sarsour, and comedian Negin Farsad. Geared toward Muslim girls--"People may tell you that you can't do something because of the way you look, dress, or pray"--the stories of 19 change makers each receive a dedicated spread. Jaleel's crisp, colorful, digitally rendered illustrations show each woman in her element--teaching, signing books--alongside text explaining her achievements and an inspirational quote. Told in broad, accessible strokes, ending lines ("Amanda believes food can be a path to peace"; "Hibah literally reaches for the stars") connect the figures' work with its high-level impact. Ages 6--up. (Oct.)"
