Yasmin's Hammer

By Kid's Home Library

Exotically colored with ethnically-charged pages full of warm hues by Chayka, this thoughtful tale takes place in Bangladesh with a young girl named Yasmin who longs to go to school. . . .Inspired by contemporary news articles, Malaspina’s story takes a dire subject and makes it compassionate and hopeful. With a fresh perspective on the value of education (Yasmin longs to read road signs and to be a shopkeeper, teacher or doctor), the story is inspiring and upbeat instead of sad. —Kid’s Home Library,
