One wish : Fatima al-Fihri and the world's oldest university / written by M.O. Yuksel ; illustrated by Mariam Quraishi.

Yuksel, M. O., (author.). Quraishi, Mariam, (illustrator.).

Summary:

The story of Fatima al-Fihri, a trailblazing woman who founded the oldest existing and continually operating university in the world.
"Fatima al-Fihri loved to learn. She wanted to know everything, like how birds flew, why the sky was blue, and how flowers grew. But more than anything, she wanted a school for all, where anyone could study and become whatever they wanted, like teachers, scientists, and doctors. As she grew older, Fatima carried her one wish inside her, through good times and bad. Fueled by her faith and her determination, she worked hard to make her one wish come true. For over a thousand years, Fatima's one wish--her school--served students and scholars from around the globe, and it continues to do so today!"--Amazon.com
