Yasmin's Hammer

By Rutgers Project on Economics and Children

Illustrated with Doug Chaka’s signature impressionistic style, this new book offers young learners a revealing look at the working and living conditions of the most vulnerable of the poor. The optimistic tone and child’s point of view help to make Yasmin’s Hammer accessible to young readers who may otherwise not identify with the topic. Teachers and parents will find the book a useful resource for talking about child labor and the value of an education.
