Yasmin's Hammer

By A Patchwork of Books

Giving a very real glimpse into the lives of children around the world. Working labor intensive jobs before they’ve reached adulthood is a reality for so many children and while ours complain about having to attend school each day, those other kids often don’t get the chance at all. The flow of the writing is done very well and the reader is able to learn a lot from a rather short story. A great discussion starter! A resource list for helping out children like Yasmin is included in the back, as well as a map and glossary. —A Patchwork of Books
