Meet Yasmin! Yasmin 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!
In her first early chapter book, Yasmin is inspired to become an explorer after seeing maps in her father's book; struggles with school projects, but finds her own way to contribute; and expands her problem solving skills when she accidentally tears her mother's kameez. A creative thinker and curious explorer, Yasmin and her multi-generational Pakistani American family will delight and inspire readers!
"Faruqi writes in clear, vivid text and in digestible chapters, incorporating references to Pakistani culture and customs. In brightly colored artwork by Aly (The Inquisitor’s Tale), Yasmin’s wide-eyed expressions and flamboyant style (striped tights, a polka-dotted painter’s smock, red cowgirl boots) lend her great appeal." — Publishers Weekly
