Good messages, relatable for kids

The Yasmin stories are great for their messages, images, and writing style. I particularly enjoy that Yasmin's culture is present in each book and yet never feels forced.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

This sweet collection of stories keeps young readers' attention with both Yasmin's actions and the brightly colored, jump-off-the-page illustrations. Yasmin in Charge focuses on good intentions and persistence, and is a wonderful showcase for Pakistani culture, with Urdu words and traditional foods sprinkled throughout the stories. Yasmin is relatable; the problems she's solving and the situations she's in are just right for readers at this level.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
