One Girl
Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

A meditative picture book about the power of reading and how one child can change the world, from #1 bestselling author Andrea Beaty

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.

Review quotes

"Beatty's rhyming text is charmingly sparse: each word is carefully chosen, and the language glimmers with precision. Much of the story is told by Phumiruk's gorgeous illustrations. . . The words and pictures work in synchrony, creating a lyrical call to action encouraging children to find their voices and, simultaneously, their inner strength."— "Kirkus Reviews"
