Meet Yasmin! Yasmin Ahmad is a spirited second-grader who’s always on the lookout for those “aha” moments to help her solve life’s little problems. Taking inspiration from her surroundings and her big imagination, she boldly faces any situation, assuming her imagination doesn’t get too big, of course! A creative thinker and curious explorer, Yasmin and her multi-generational Pakistani American family will delight and inspire readers.
This book is about Yasmin, she’s a creative Pakistani American girl with a natural curiosity and an amazing family who loves her and supports her.
It was great to read a story that shows diversity in their characters and I love the fact that includes some words in Urdu (a language from Pakistan) with their English translation and also some interesting facts about that Country (it’s a good way to learn more about other cultures).
This book tells a story that is fresh and fun to read, in addition it has beautiful illustrations that make it even more engaging for younger readers.
As an adult I loved this book, will definitely recommend it and look forward to read more books from Saadia Faruqi in the future.
